Bio-bus runs on poo – level 1

27-11-2014 15:00

This news is about a bus. The bus operates in England. It runs on gas. This gas comes from human poo!

The bus can travel 186 miles (299 km) on one tank of gas. It can transport up to 40 people.

The bus is good for our planet. People produce the gas. The bus can always have enough gas.

Difficult words: operate (work, be), poo (brown waste you leave in the toilet), tank (a thing which has space inside for something like water or gas).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
