El OmnibusEsta equina ya recibía el nombre de "El Omnibus" en la relación que registra Gonzalo Cámara Zavala en 1948 debido a que en 1889 se estableció el primer servicio urbano de camiones de tracción animal para pasajeros. Se le llamaba entonce "ómnibus" aunque años después se importara la palabra "guagua" que pervivió largo tiempo.Maya-Yucateco:El OmnibusLe ti'its je'ela' u k'aaba'e' "El Omnibus" ti' u ts'íib Gonzalo Cámara Zavalae' tu ja'abil 1948e', ku ya'alike' tu ja'abil 1889e' leti'ka jts'áab yáax camión ku jíita'al tumen ba'alche' utia'al u púuta'al wíinik.

It was thus called "Omnibus" although years later the word "guagua" would be imported and prevail for a long time.
