The horse bus continued through to the early 1900s, by which time an open upper deck had been added so more people could board. At this time there were no fixed bus stops and passengers could hail buses from the roadside. Most buses had conductors, but on some buses, passengers stopped the bus by banging on the roof or pulling on reins attached to the driver's arms. Official bus routes were first introduced in 1906.
