How did the bus get its name?

In 1828, a new kind of conveyance was invented and was referred to as `voitre omnibus`(`voitre` was a French word meaning "carriage" and "omnibus" was a Latin word meaning "for all"). This conveyance became extremely popular in England and over the years, it came to be referred to as the bus. A bus, as we know, is a long passenger vehicle with a central aisle and seats along the sides. Since a bus carried a collection of diverse people, the same word came to be used to refer to other things conveying different things from one place to another, like the cart for dishes and the electrical cables used for power and data distribution.
