A private transport system is something worthy of a James Bond film, however some of the major tech companies in Silicon Valley, including Apple, have put together secret bus routes for their employees to use, Cult of Mac reports.
The routes were mapped out by design company Stamen after it received a grant to make an art project.
However it soon discovered that the shuttle network was way bigger than originally thought. Google alone, it was found, runs 150 trips daily, all over San Francisco. Even more amazing, the total number of people transported by this shuttle network is about 35% of what Caltrain moves. How could such an important network have gone unnoticed?
If you live in San Francisco, you’ve probably seen the buses as they’re difficult to miss, with perks such as WiFi, tinted windows and aircon. However one presumes the whole thing was kept on the down low for fear of people trying to board them.
It’s a fascinating project, and you can find out more about the process on Stamen’s site. The map of bus routes is below.
