Found 23rd Sep 2011
More of a heads up really than a deal. Megabus is to trial the UK’s first budget sleeper coach service.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. between Glasgow and London in each direction.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 to £40*. best fare i can find is £1 on 7th +14 th december. & £3 on 9th+ 15th november

I dunno if I would want to go into a 'bunk' where someone, who paid a £1 for the pleasure, has been up to godknowswhat. Icky.

Shotgun top bunk

Is it like the Harry Potter Knight Bus?

Good deal if you want to go overnight, sounds interesting. I took the Megabus once, it was only a quid but not the greatest experience I ever had

Anything for a half decent sleep!

Woo cheaper than paying for a hotel in London. Just catch the bus to Glasgow and back. This could solve the homeless problem!

Can you fit 2 people into these

One on top of each other you would but don't tell farfromout...........and the wheels on the bus go round & round

"More of a heads up really than a deal."

I would say more of a "heads down" - boom boom!

Good deal - can't see how Megabus can make any profit on this though with the current fuel prices.

I can't deny it's a bargain (voted hot), but this one's definitely not for me. Can't stand coaches at the best of times!

(I'd definitely recommend the Caledonian Sleeper train though. It's admittedly far more expensive, but you get a comfy berth and there's a bar.)

It makes money like easyjet I think, a few seats are a quid but can be £40 for the last bunk.

What happened to the seat belts on buses rule? Do you get strapped down?

That's a rather weird comment and has nothing to do with such a good deal! It smells of 'class conscious' behaviour

How is that 'class conscious'?

Are you suggesting that as the charge is only £1 that poor people are using the service? Thereby placing your suppositions on farfromout's comment?

I think it is you who is 'class conscious'.

CHEEPSTUFFRULES!

can you imagine the crash aftermath

I personally would prefer normal seat rather then sleeper. because I think it will only have space for someone to sleep and hardly any space to move around or sit down.
Heat for the price.

Like.. hotels? Nothing wrong with sleepers on trains and buses, very common across Europe and Asia.

Sounds to me like you get a seat too.

This is the most terrible idea ever!

Just looks like they've shoved him in the overhead luggage compartment.

I hope they change the sheets everytime a passenger gets off.

watch out for the needles popping up in the bunks

back in the 90s the overnight to london used to be known as Londonliner but aptly nicknamed Junkie liner

abstain on this

Everybody's a comedian

What rule would that be?



I am sure they have to have seat belts in buses by law, not sure if you are obliged to use them in law or not (unlike cars). But I do not see how the rule applies when you are seated and not when you are planked.

GENEROUS! Would that include a return ticket or one-way?!

(I guess it would depend on the first leg of the journey?!)

remember this service well used to be operated by bruces coaches of salsburgh who now have the national express contract so maybe the junkies are travelling national express these days!

I'm sure they'll change the sheets.....I'm surprised people are even wondering whether this is the case or not!
