Megabus sleepercoachStagecoach has announced it is to launch a major network of overnight sleepercoach services from Scotland to London this summer using a £5 million fleet of specially-designed vehicles.

The fleet of 10 new coaches, equipped with a clever interior layout that allows the leather seats to be converted into lie-flat beds, will operate overnight seven days a week.

Sleepercoach services will link London with Dundee, Aberdeen, Aviemore, Cumbernauld, Dunfermline Edinburgh, Falkirk, Ferrytoll Park and Ride in Fife, Glasgow, Inverness and Perth.

The state-of-the-art double-deck coaches boast luxury leather seats with tables, power sockets, free Wi-Fi and a toilet. The specially designed vehicles have 53 seats that convert into 42 beds.

Prices on the new services will range from £15 to £60. Journey times are comparable to existing sleeper train services, with customers able to make the trip from both Edinburgh and Glasgow to London in less than eight hours.

Specially designed and manufactured by Van Hool in Belgium, the sleepercoaches will operate under a new brand.
