Shuttle Disaster ?
While Bart was circulating a warning flyer this week saying that 11% of robberies on the rail system were iPod thefts, and perpetually late Muni looks to fine transfer-less miscreants, Saturday’s NY Times profiles one of the Bay Area’s most beloved transit programs, that being Google’s shuttle service. The fleet of wifi equipped bio-diesel busses run by Bauer limosines traverse 6 counties, a range larger than any regional transit service, and daily whisk over 1,200 Google employees to and fro.
One well coddled software engineering Cow Hollow resident tells the paper of record of the corporate perk
“If they cut the shuttle, it would be a disaster.”
Meanwhile, rumor has it that someone is still waiting for a cab, a bus, a horse and carriage, anything at 17th & DeHaro… since last Wednesday.
