Commuting in London can often times be frustrating, as you find yourself packed onto the tube like sardines. Sleep brand Simba is looking to remedy the issue, though, courtesy of their Snoozeliner concept.
Designed by Surrey-based Andersson-Wood Architects, the Snoozeliner has been in development for four months. Ultimately, the bus will allow passengers to sleep while onboard.
Each patron will have their own futuristic sleeping pod (there are 14 total), equipped with sound-isolating treatments, acoustic blackout blinds, and an amber light therapy system. There are also storage compartments, and the suite is even outfitted with various scent infusions that encourage rest.
“New research shows we doze off on public transport 27 times a year and are at our most sleep deprived in December,” says James Cox, CEO of Simba. “The Snoozeliner service is all about helping people top up some valuable lost sleep time in a design that’s every bit as comfortable as their bed at home.”
Simba’s goal is to have eight Snoozeliner routes across the UK from Fall 2018.
