No. 2

First West of England’s new “Bio-Bus” will run on 2 in more ways than one. The line it’s scheduled on, between Cribbs Causeway and Stockwood in Bristol, England, is known as Service 2, and the fuel it runs on comes from something popularly called “number 2.” The bus will take on fuel from a plant that generates methane from human waste and food waste; its suppliers include 32,000-plus households near Service 2’s route. A bus company official said the bus “should help to open up a serious debate about how buses are best fueled, and what is good for the environment.” (AC/Sky News) ...And that debate will no doubt provide plenty of fuel for the No. 2 bus.
