The frequency of service is also usually comparable to the train although longer distance journey times are usually much longer by coach. Modern long-distance coaches are comfortable and are equipped with food and toilet facilities with Wi-Fi access also available on some routes.
An innovative overnight sleeper service operated by Stagecoach also runs 7 nights a week between London and Glasgow. Passengers have their own berth as well as a standard seat for greater comfort during their journey.
