A major step towards sustainable development has been taken by Britain which is set to launch its first ever bus which uses sewage and food waste to run. The bus, nicknamed ‘Poo bus’ will be operated by First West of England and run on biomethane gas from the waste of more than 32,000 households.

The bus which can seat 40 passengers and cover 300 Kms on one tank of gas will start running from the 25th of this month, making four trips every week between Cribbs Causeway and Stockwood in Bristol, the Independent reported.

The bus service company will start more such poo-buses, if this bus is a success.

‘The very fact that it’s up and running in the city should help to open up a serious debate about how buses are best fuelled, and what is good for the environment.’ Managing Director of First West of England,  James Freeman told Independent.
