Historical buses

The bus service has started in 1927 with 2 Czechoslovak buses Praga NO. Shorty thereafter, there were delivered Czechoslovak vehicles Škoda 750 NR and additional Praga NOs. Because of economic depression in beginning of 1930's, new vehicles weren't being bought and old was rebuilt to gas traction. After the crisis, Bratislava Bus Company bought 12 modern Czechoslovak buses Tatra 91 (1937).
During Second World War, Germany forced Slovakia to buy German vehicles so 10 buses MAN Diesel were delivered in 1939. In April 1945, the most of buses was damaged by German army and company needed to replace them. Deliveries of new buses started in 1947 with Czechoslovak type Praga NDO and continues with Praga RN, Škoda 706 RO.
Only four historical buses of public transport in Bratislava are saved: Praga RN, Škoda 706 RO, Škoda 706 RTO and Karosa ŠM 11.
