The second thing is that there is actually such a bus transporting people between Bath and Bristol in England.

Efficiently and not pungently.

This bus “runs” (sorry, I couldn’t resist) on human waste, producing 30% less CO2 than a similar bus running on diesel.  Plus, it can travel 186 miles on a full tank, using waste from 32,000 households to carry 10,000 people a month on its 15-mile route.

And of course, it’s generated a lot of quips, such as the bus is crap, and how one has a duty to go doody. And how amusing that the area serviced by this bus is “#2.”

As reported by the BBC, Mohammed Saddiq, the general manager of the project, said: “Gas-powered vehicles have an important role to play in improving air quality in UK cities but the Bio-Bus goes further than that and is actually powered by people living in the local area, including quite possibly those on the bus itself.”

What a nice thought. So, trot on over to England, and take a run on the poo bus!
