well, yeah, I know it started with the omni-bus, the large carriages that shuffled people around to locations
You could talk about the canal. It ran through Troy and my hometown on the Hudson River.
There are also the railroad cars. Albany, NY tore up their streets to produce tracks for Ironweed.

We could go really far back and talk about merchant trade from England and the ships that sailed to Philadelphia from NY.
http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Avenue_Coach_Lines has a great photo. Basically it replaced the railroad.
see also http://www.CoachBuilt.com/bui/a/American_Motor_bus/American_motor_bus,htm talks about Conklin's gas powered motor bus..also in Chicago built more for comfort, not mass transit. The Chicago Stage Company, St. Louis Mtor Car Co. were all owned by Conklin @1915
thanks, this is cool stuff!
It's the computer...and the search engine.
I only knew about the Canal because my town had one in Saratoga Co...and you didn't need to now that.
