I have a main floor bathroom in a bungalow. I would like to put a bathroom in the basement, the main toilet/vent runs to the basement about 8 feet from where I am going to install the basement bathroom, do I require to vent the basement bathroom or will the main bathroom vent be sufficient.
Thank you

it will require at least one 2 inch vent and possibly more depending on how you arrange the fixtures.
the 2 inch vent will need to be brought thru the roof or run into a vent stack in the attic .

THAT is NOT a vent. It is the drain for the upstairs plumbing. A drain is NOT a vent, nor can it be used as one.
