    but the Google Bus is not without controversy. For one, in my neighborhood where they along with all the other tech buses going down to Silicon Valley have totally taken over, they clog up the streets, back up traffic, slow down public transit. The other, perhaps bigger issue, is that they take away Caltrain riders, people who would otherwise take the public train but now take these private buses. I don't doubt their good intentions, but there are some serious side effects to these buses that need to be addressed. Personally, I think Google could do so much better if they put their billions into helping the Bay Area expand public transit infrastructure.

      Since they like the productivity element, one thing they could do is help fund WiFi connectivity on public transportation, which in turn would make those systems more attractive to others.
