The chance to travel from San Francisco to Los Angeles by sleeper bus is now available from SleepBus at a fixed price of $65 one-way with twin beds, bathrooms and wifi, from AT&T Park in San Francisco to Santa Monica Pier.
SleepBus has been founded by Tom Currier, a serial entrepreneur who started his first company at the age of nine.
This is what Currier says about SleepBus:
'Six million people fly between SF and LA every year. On peak days, there are 157 flights between the two cities, one every nine minutes. It’s never the best experience, and it can get expensive if you book last minute. The SleepBus experience is different.
SleepBus uses time you’d normally be sleeping to travel. Our buses have full twin beds, nice bathrooms, space to hang out, and WiFi. We’ll pick up at AT&T Park in San Francisco, leave at 11 PM, and arrive in LA at 5 or 6 AM at Santa Monica Pier.
There’s no airport hassle, and if you sleep well on the bus, you don’t even notice the 6 or 7 hours. And unlike plane fares, which can get very expensive at the last minute, a one-way SleepBus ticket is always $65, no matter how close to the departure you book it.'
And what of future plans?
Tom Currier: 'We hope to expand the “waking up in a new destination” beyond the SF to LA route, and add on destinations like San Diego, Las Vegas, and Tahoe. For only $65 one-way, think of how many more people would take weekend trips to San Diego.'
