Here’s a unique idea that budget travelers traveling between San Francisco and Los Angeles will love. The SleepBus is an overnight bus between LA and SF that made its maiden voyage on April 18th. It’s the brainchild of Tom Currier, a serial entrepreneur who started his first company at nine-years-old. The SleepBus uses the time you’d normally be sleeping to get you across California, without the hassle of airports or expensive last-minutes plane fares. The website says that fares are always $65, but right now they’re $48 each way.
The SleepBus is outfitted with twin beds, clean bathrooms, hangout space, and Wi-Fi. It picks up at AT&T Park in San Francisco at 11 pm, and arrives in LA at 5 or 6 am at Santa Monica Pier. It returns the same night at 11 pm from LA and arrives in SF at 5 or 6 am.
In three-to-six months they hope to have 10 buses and expand overnight travel to Tahoe, Las Vegas and San Diego.
