Bus Design: Completed and is ready to go. The bus design includes 22 individual sleep pods, 2 toilets, 22 personal items lockers, under bus storage, 8 pet kennels, security system, lighting system inside & out and intercom system for family sleep pods with parental control locks. The toilet’s have been strategically located at the front of the bus to assist with the safety of guests within the bus.

Sleep Pods: Each sleep pods comes with single bed inner spring mattress, pillows, sheets and blankets (washed daily). The pod has USB charging for mobile phones, personal light, lockable roller door, climate control and Television with auxiliary channel running adverts for available services in the area to help with pathways out of homelessness. Each pod can be adapted for families, with parents able to control their child’s door lock and intercom for communication between designated family members only. Various sizes have been tested. I’ve slept in a pod every night for 3 weeks or so and found it very comfortable and cosy, which is important. Even the kids had a go.
