Prepare to be “teleported” from Southern California to the Bay Area. That’s the idea behind a new bus equipped with sleeping cabins that leaves Santa Monica at night and delivers your well-rested self to San Francisco the next morning.

Each bus has been tricked out with 24 cabins with beds, a bathroom and a lounge for the six- to eight-hour journey. Buses are equipped with electrical outlets and free Wi-Fi. There’s an attendant on board too, in case you crave a cup of tea in the evening or an espresso in the morning.
