Known as the ‘Bio-Bus’ or popularly, the poo-bus, it is fueled by human and household waste. This bus is expected to go into regular service later this month.
It will use waste gathered and from about 32,000 households along its 15-mile route.
The bus is operated by First West of England and will fill up at a site in Avonmouth,Bristol, where sewage and inedible food waste is turned into biomethane gas.
It can take up to 40 people at a goal and will run four times a week. According to managers, the bus “should help to open up a serious debate about how buses are best fuelled, and what is good for the environment.”
