Coach firm introduces sleeper routes

Have your say

A budget sleeper coach service was due to go into service last night – with London to Scotland fares starting at just £1.

Fitted with 24 berths and 24 seats, specially converted coaches are being operated between London and Glasgow by Stagecoach’s “megabus” division.

Passengers have individual berths, equipped with reading lights and curtains for privacy, as well as duvets, pillows and blankets, the firm said.

They are also allocated standard seats.

They get access to a toilet, free wi-fi, on-board refreshments and each gets a complimentary overnight pack containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, a bottle of water, an eye mask and a luggage label.

Seven-nights-a-week, a coach leaves Glasgow for London coach at 11.10pm, getting in at 7am the next day.

A northbound coach leaves London at 11.55pm each evening to arrive at 7.45am.
