New Bus Tour Designed To Put It’s Passengers To Sleep

New Bus Tour Designed To Put It’s Passengers To Sleep

 

Hands up if you’ve ever driven around the block in the middle of the night to help settle a screaming baby. Yes? Then you can totally understand why a bus company would introduce tours for adults who find it hard to fall asleep.

A Hong Kong tour company who noticed it’s passengers were falling asleep on its buses, launched a five-hour “Sleeping Bus Tour” to nowhere in the hopes of giving it’s patrons a restful sleep.

“When we were brainstorming new tours, I saw a social media post from my friend saying that he was stressed out by his work, he couldn’t sleep at night,” Kenneth Kong, ulu’s marketing and business manager said in an interview. “But when he was traveling on the bus, he was able to sleep well. His post inspired us to create this tour that lets passengers just sleep on the bus.”

Tickets range from $13 to $51 per person for the 42 mile trip depending on upper or lower deck seating. Riders also get a goodie bag with an eye mask and earplugs.

According to Dr. Shirley Li, lead investigator of the University of Hong Kong’s Sleep Research Clinic and Laboratory, the tour provides a place to rest for sleep-deprived people who find sleep comes easier with the motions of being on public transport.

“In Hong Kong, many do not get enough sleep. As a result, we have to sleep throughout other periods of the day, such as our daily commute, especially while taking public transportation. Some people may link public transportation with a lack of sleep. That’s why it was simpler for them to fall asleep on the bus,” Li said.

The response to the tour has been overwhelming with the first round of tickets already sold out. One of it’s first customers said: “I’ve been suffering from insomnia, so I’ve come here to try to get some sleep.”
