The first buses were not electrical but Fiat gasoline engined.
  By the newspaper report the faults were :
  No fixed stops.
  The bus would wait until filled up.
   Suggestions in paper:
    The drivers should assist passengers getting on board.
  ( also some bystanders )

built into the pavement and electrical lines above. And there were
which operated on wheels like a bus, but electrical lines above, like
a tramcar.
I remember much preferring the "omnibus" to the "tramvay", but I do
not know why.
