A brief history
The French capital Paris was also a pioneer in this sector: the Carrosses à cinq sols, which operated on five routes starting in 1662, is regarded as the world’s first public transport system. Across the Channel in England, the first stagecoach between London and Chester entered service a few years earlier, in 1657.
