When I saw this horse-drawn coach of the 19th century at the Carnavalet Museum (photo 1), I regretted having to plunge under ground at the Madeleine Metro station to take to the line 12 towards Concorde and walk over the long corridors of this station to take line 1 towards la Bastille.
It was certainly slower with the horse-drawn "omnibus" coach but certainly quieter if I believe the painting of Maurice Delondre called "On the Omnibus" (1880) (photo 2).

==================================

En voyant cet omnibus hippomobile à impériale du 19e siècle au Musée Carnavalet (photo 1), j'ai regretté de devoir plonger sous terre à la station Madeleine pour y prendre la ligne 12 vers Concorde et parcourir les longs couloirs de cette station pour prendre la ligne 1 vers la Bastille.
C'était certainement plus lent à cheval mais plus tranquille si j'en crois la tableau de Maurice Delondre "Dans l'omnibus" (1880) (photo 2).
