Stagecoach Group is to trial the UK’s first budget sleeper coach service between Glasgow and London.
The new pilot service, operated by megabus.com, will offer passengers their own berth as well as a standard seat for greater comfort during their journey.
Passengers will have access to a toilet, free wi-fi, on-board refreshments and a complimentary overnight pack containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, a bottle of water, an eye mask and a luggage label. Each berth has a reading light and curtain for extra privacy, as well as a duvet, pillow and blanket.
Fares on the new service, which is being operated with three specially-refurbished articulated coaches fitted with 24 berths and seats, will range from £1/€1 to £40/€40*.
Customers purchasing tickets online for the existing overnight megabus.com services between Glasgow and London will be given the opportunity to upgrade to the new sleeper service.
The service will operate seven nights a week to the following timetable:
- Depart Glasgow at 23:10 and arrive in London at 07:00
- Depart London at 23.55 and arrive in Glasgow at 07:45
*All reservations are subject to a 50p/50c booking fee.
