The true story

The true story of the collective history we have been told about the origin of this popular form of transport, the bus, buses, micro, bus or whatever you call it, referring to ingenious Buenos Aires taxi drivers who, in 1928, had added extra seats to their cars and offered scheduled services at a single price. However, the history of organized public transport has a history dating back almost 400 years ago. Was on the morning of 18 March 1662, when the streets of Paris by a vehicle driven multiplaza horses (there was no engine any yet), began to mark a fixed itinerary, round trip where passengers pay a single value that was the most appropriate destination of travel. The creator of this concept and enterprise was the famous French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal, with his partner the Duke of Roannez.Months later, the Privy Council granted them permission to establish the flow of public floats in the city of Paris and vicinity. They settled seven other units capable of accommodating eight passengers each. But shortly after Blaise Pascal dies and the service disappears. In the early seventeenth century, the city of London first saw the taxi, of course-drawn, an idea that then was promoted throughout Europe. Also, in England, there were horse-driven vehicles Multiplazas that moved passengers from the downtown areas to ports. In 1819 Jacques Lafitte, reintroduced collective transport services to flat rate for trips within the city of Paris, which tended to the network of urban trips. Jean Lafitte (brother of Jacques), co-owner of “Messageries Generale of France then joined a network of steps in northern France with Paris involving intercity routes.Six years after the term comes to be known by since. It was in 1826, when Stanislas Baudry began covering a shuttle service between downtown and the suburbs of Nantes which gave baths. The header line was at a store whose sign advertised “Omnes bus” in Latin “omnis” meaning “all” and “bus” is the dative plural form meaning “for all”. In this way, “Omnes bus” meant “Omnes is for everyone.” Stanislas Baudry adopted the term “L’Omnibus” and wrote it on the sides of your vehicle, which has since been known as means of transport “bus”. In August 1826, the employer abandoned the venture thermal baths and began walking the path Salorges – Richebourg Nantes with 2 bus route thatched and capacity for 16 passengers.In 1827, Stanislas Baudry began operating in Bordeaux, but Edm e Fouquet emerged as a competitor with the Lady Blanche “(The White Lady), a company that in principle, only work in Nantes. In 1828 Stanislas Baudry got partners and created “L’Entreprise des Omnibus”. Thus was launched in Paris with a new vehicle service network groups. At the same time graduated 100 “Omnibus” on 18 routes within Paris itself. It empowered the employer of “The Lady Blanche” (Edmee Bouquet with partners) to begin operating again in Paris. Baudry and used cars Fouquet three horses (model builder George Shillibeer) with three compartments normal, meaning that all proceedings in France had big “coupe” on the front, “Berlin” in the center and “rotonde” at the later.In August 1828 he observed the transit of the first vehicles with single-class bus compartment, longitudinal seats and rear entrance. Two years later appeared in Paris the cars of three horses, once replaced by a version of two horses to cut costs. The purpose of profit and the very lives of Stanislas Baudry escaped in the harsh winter of 1829, where the disproportionate increase forage for horses, lack of business recovery and the absence of subsidy contributed to his suicide. However, theRoyal Spanish Academy (1992) also did not forget it, since it defines the “bus” (as dative of omnis), with the sense of a vehicle of great ability, used to transport people, usually within populations, for a reduced price. The same source indicates that this term gave rise in turn to the word “bus” which is short for “self” and “bus”.Also from this side of the ocean in Rio de Janeiro, appeared around 1838, the bus pulled by horses at the initiative of a French citizen. Eleven years later, opened in Buenos Aires his first serve regular urban passenger transport.
