This Story on Cnet (which appears to come from the new york times) is an interesting write up about Google's new(ish) bus system for their workers. It's an interesting look into the depths that Google goes to separate themselves from the competition.

Living in Phoenix doesn't compare to the traffic mess that those in the Silicon Valley have to deal with and I've already taken the step of riding my motorcycle 365 days a year so as to always have access to the HOV lanes. I could handle a cushy bus ride with wireless access... And lets not forget the fact that they are using "Green" buses and cutting down on the number of cars on the road.

Google gets lots of press about the great things they do, and sometimes the stuff is a tad weak in my opinion (while certainly plenty of other times it's spot on)... In this case, I believe they deserve the good press. It was also nice to see the offerings of a few other big players in the valley when it comes to commutes.
