LOS ANGELES — In an attempt to compete with airlines and bring more luxury to intercity motorcoach travel, a new startup, called Cabin, has launched to provide overnight service between Los Angeles and San Francisco featuring sleeping pods, The Economist reports.

For a $230 round trip, Cabin focuses on having a good night’s rest while eliminating the hassle of going to the airport and includes a private sleep pod, sleep-inducing amenities, Wi-Fi, water, coffee, and a communal area for those that are not sleepy. The drivers intentionally go slowly and take back roads so that the trip, normally six hours, lasts eight.

The service currently runs only between Los Angeles and San Francisco, leaving each city at 11 p.m. and arriving at 7 a.m. Although Cabin is looking to expand to other cities, the current route is a perfect example of that awkward travel distance to which there is no good solution, according to The Economist.
