A UK-based mattress manufacturer announced that will roll out its Snoozeliner bus service on eight routes across four cities in the UK in fall 2018.

The Snoozeliner vehicle concept, developed by Simba, are double-decker buses, each equipped with 14 sleep pods. Simba plans to outfit the buses with a storage system for personal belongings, USB chargers, and Wi-Fi. Sleep pods will be fitted with the company's pillows, duvets, and memory foam mattresses. Passengers will also have a choice of scent infusions.

Users of the service will be able to enter their stop as they board, allowing stewards to wake them upon reaching their destination.

Simba has been developing the Snoozeliner for four months, adding sound isolation, black-out blinds, and a recessed amber light-therapy system to aid with sleep.

Passengers will have access to free mineral water, with coffee and smoothies also available. Simba will also offer revitalizer kits containing vitamin C and milk thistle. Simba is working with a food delivery service to coordinate deliveries with passenger arrival times.
