Let's all live on the cheap and in style on the Megabus!

23 September 2011

sleeper_webbanner-21oct If you can’t afford your mortgage or rent, fancy living in Glasgow and London and are looking for an ‘alternative’ lifestyle, why not consider living on a Megabus?

It’ll soon be a viable, if vaguely inhumane way of surviving. Megabus are set to trial the UK’s first budget sleeper service, with passengers getting their own berth as well as a standard seat on the service which will travel in both directions overnight between Glasgow and London.

There’ll also be access to a toilet, free wi-fi, on-board refreshments  and a complimentary overnight pack containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, a bottle of water, an eye mask and a luggage label. Each berth has a reading light and curtain for extra privacy, as well as a duvet, pillow and blanket. Basically, everything you need.

With prices starting at £1 a journey, if you book early you could be bedding down on the Megabus every night and spending your alternate days wandering around London Or Glasgow. All for £7 a week.

If you decide to go for it, drop us a line and let us know how you get on.

    There’ll also be access to a (rancid, disgusting) toilet, free (intermittently working) wi-fi, (disgracefully overpriced) on-board refreshments and a complimentary overnight pack containing a (probably previously used to clean the rancid, disgusting toilet) toothbrush, (75% diethylene glycol) toothpaste, a (250ml) bottle of water, an eye mask and a luggage label. Each berth has a (likely non-operational or too dull to be of any practical use) reading light and curtain for extra privacy, as well as a (wafer-thin) duvet, (wafer thin) pillow and blanket (that disposable paper stuff they use on doctors' benches).

    I think its a great idea

    I think with accom at £7 a week (surely £14 if you need to get back to work where u started from?) you can afford you buy your own dental supplies and they're not usually too large a size to carry. Also if you're asleep why are you needing to poo? Just wee in a bottle (or out the window) if the toilet is that bad, then poo in a handy M&S on arrival. I once held a poo for 3 days of the Reading Festival. It's easy if the toilets are that bad. Also the Wifi, you'll be asleep, unless you're sleep-w*nking to p*rn featuring rancid toilets (which some people seem obsessed by). Some people are just cynics. Shame on FFS

    > I once held a poo for 3 days of the Reading Festival. WTF didn't you put it down next to someone's tent? Weren't your hands a bit smelly?
