As traffic has been the #1 concern of San Franciscans for ten years straight, the shuttles are certainly appreciated. But they also reduce the number of vehicles on the road and every one of the shuttles runs on bio-diesel.
Adding to the awesomeness is the intelligence with which the system is run. A small team of transportation engineers at Google not only have determined the most efficient methods and times for running the shuttle, but intelligent procedures like automated late bus text messages. Such convience in mass transit has long been promised, but never actually seen. Maybe it's time Google takes over mass transit for the whole city. It isn't exactly "organizing the world's information," but helping people get where there going has to be part of the battle. Via: NYTimes
