"Mobile Hotel" lets travelers sleep between LA and San Francisco

When it comes to traveling between Los Angeles and San Francisco, there are planes, trains, automobiles — and now a new bus service that bills itself as a mobile boutique hotel.

Called Cabin, it travels overnight between the two cities, putting up passengers in individual rooms outfitted with comfortable beds, high-end sheets, privacy curtains, power outlets, USB cords, ear plugs and other amenities. When travelers check in for their 11 p.m. trip, they're offered a cup of chamomile tea. When they arrive at their destination — at 7 the next morning — it's espresso.

Here is the link: http://www.scpr.org/programs/take-two/2017/07/20/58081/the-ride-cabin-mobile-hotel-lets-travelers-sleep-b/

If this works out and becomes popular and profitable I would think there would be more poping up here and there and everywhere.

OK, good idea...but...
At our age, Jean and I both need nearby, convenient, frequently-empty bathrooms, even in the middle of the night. And we're getting a little too creaky to climb in and out of upper berths.
But for the (relatively) young, it's a terrific concept.
We hope that it catches on.

Interesting enough I have written to the author asking about restroom facilities. I will post any information I might receive. Stay by and tune is at 11 for the latest and greatest.
