Google’s Buses Help Its Workers Beat the Rush

Google’s Buses Help Its Workers Beat the Rush - New York Times:

"The company now ferries about 1,200 employees to and from Google daily — nearly one-fourth of its local work force — aboard 32 shuttle buses equipped with comfortable leather seats and wireless Internet access.

Bicycles are allowed on exterior racks, and dogs on forward seats, or on their owners’ laps if the buses run full.

Riders can sign up to receive alerts on their computers and cellphones when buses run late.

They also get to burnish their green credentials, not just for ditching their cars, but because all Google shuttles run on biodiesel."
