Eco-friendly Bristol 'poo bus' powered by human waste



Britain's first bus to be powered by human and food waste has taken to the roads.

The 40-seat Bio-Bus, nicknamed "the number two," will transport people between Bath and Bristol Airport.

The biomethane gas it runs on is produced at a sewage treatment works at Avonmouth.

The eco-friendly vehicle can travel up to 300km (186 miles) on one tank of gas, which takes the annual waste of about five people to produce.

They should tune the exhaust to sound like a fart.

All five people depicted on the side of that bus are doing something else while using the loo. Doesn't anyone go just to do what it's there for?
