Benz motorized bus.

In 1895 Benz & Cie. builds the world's first two omnibuses. They mark the beginning of motorised public passenger transport. They operate on the Siegen-Netphen-Deuz route in the Siegerland region. Because persistent rain softens the roads, the buses are only in service for a few weeks. The originals no longer exist.
