the first hospitality transportation company on a mission to make the
most of every waking and sleeping moment, today announced it has secured
$3.3 million in seed financing and launched a moving hotel. Cabin’s
one-of-a-kind overnight travel experience enables people to reclaim
their time while saving money by consolidating both transportation and
accommodation into one simple and delightful experience.
Initially run as a pilot called SleepBus in early 2016, Cabin sold out
of tickets in three days and amassed a waitlist of over 20,000 people
seeking to be “teleported” to regional destinations up to 500 miles from
home. Led by Founders Fund's FF Angel with participation from SV Angel,
Floodgate, Box Group, Brainchild Holdings, Justin Rosenstein, StartX, FJ
Labs, and 1517 Fund, the new round of funding will allow Cabin to scale
operations both on a regional and national level.
“By eliminating the travel time from traveling, Cabin is giving people
the freedom to get where they need to be - without having to spend their
precious time in transit,” said Tom Currier, CEO and Co-Founder of Cabin.
How Cabin Works:
Guests check into their private cabin at 11:00 p.m. PT while Cabin is
stationary at the designated point of departure.
Once the guest is comfortable, the moving hotel travels to the arrival
destination. During this time, guests have access to both their
private cabin as well as a bathroom and communal lounge, while
enjoying WiFi and luxurious, sleep-inducing amenities.
A certified attendant is onboard for the duration of the journey to
assist all guests.
Guests check out rested and refreshed in their arrival city at 7:00
Availability & Pricing:
Cabin’s moving hotel service is initially available between San
Francisco and Los Angeles with additional expansion on the horizon.
Book a private cabin and sleep in miles per hour, starting at $115
“Cabin will turn costly and draining regional trips into affordable,
comfortable, enjoyable experiences,” said Luke Nosek, Partner at
Founders Fund. “We're excited to support Cabin as it re-imagines the
future of transportation.”
