3 Tips for Sleeping on an Overnight Bus Trip, Bolton, Connecticut

Whether you’re taking a charter bus to another city or across the country, you may find yourself having to sleep while you’re on the way. While it might not be your ideal choice of sleeping arrangements, it can be done. Here are a few tips for getting quality sleep on an overnight bus trip.

How to Get Good Sleep on a Bus

1. Schedule Your Trip Wisely

If you can, talk to your group leader about leaving when you normally go to bed. Your body will be ready for rest, so the circumstances won’t interfere with your sleep as much as they might if you tried to nap during an early evening bus ride. 

2. Bring the Proper Supplies

To block out distracting lights and sounds, bring an eye mask, headphones, and earplugs; listen to soothing music or an audio book to help you relax.

3. Choose Your Seat Strategically

Plan to arrive early so that you can pick a seat that works well for you. Window seats are helpful for overnight trips because you can lean against them or lookout if you’re having trouble sleeping. If you think you’d sleep better with your seat tilted back, keep in mind that the seats in the last row of a charter bus often don’t recline. Sit closer to the front, as the ride won’t be as shaky.
