Coach

 

(in Russian, omnibus), a multiseat horse-drawn vehicle used for transporting passengers; the earliest kind of public transportation, first introduced in Paris in 1662. In the 1820’s coaches were widely used in France and Great Britain; in the mid-19th century their use also spread to other countries of Western Europe and to the USA. They were also used in intercity transportation. Coaches ceased to be used in the early 20th century, when they were replaced by other modes of transportation.

In France the term omnibus is used to describe a regular passenger train, as distinguished from fast and express trains.
