At the end of the 19th century, London traffic depended entirely on the horse, and statistics from 1900 show that there were 3,681 horse buses and 1,473 horse trams which carried an estimated total of 868 million passengers. The horse bus of 1900 seated 26 passengers and each route had its own distinctive colour scheme. Within 13 months of the introduction of the 'B' type Bus, the last horse bus of the General Omnibus Company Limited ran on the night of 25th October 1911.
