I was wondering if someone knows how to say bus in latin.

I was thinking of plaustrum automobile.

Perhaps someone has access to LRL or other neolatin dictionary?
Thanks:hat:

Nonnunquam autocarrum id appello, quoniam simile sit Lusitanico "autocarro", quanquam fateor composita Graeca et Latina minus elegantia videri.

What is this that roareth thus?
Can it be a Motor Bus?
Yes, the smell and hideous hum
Indicat Motorem Bum!
Implet in the Corn and High
Terror me Motoris Bi:
Bo Motori clamitabo
Ne Motore caedar a Bo—
Dative be or Ablative
So thou only let us live:—
Whither shall thy victims flee?
Spare us, spare us, Motor Be!
Thus I sang; and still anigh
Came in hordes Motores Bi,
Et complebat omne forum
Copia Motorum Borum.
How shall wretches live like us
Cincti Bis Motoribus?
Domine, defende nos
Contra hos Motores Bos!
