In a related story, Facebook is evil.
it must be cheaper to run ferries than to pay SF 100k
I find it amusing that SF and other cities are constantly screaming for employers to provide alternatives to people driving solo to and from work and then as soon as one employer implements an effective solution, they want to tax it!!! I guess it just goes to show that it really isn't about global warming, it's about global taxation.

...does google allow/encourage telecommuting and, if not, why not?
I have a suggestion and would like to see if people would think it might work.
How about hovercrafts? They do not need a dredged waterway and do not need a dock as they can use a slipway as they hover over water rather than sit in water. They are fast and efficient, can carry a large number of people as well as cars and bicycles. Could Google start using hovercrafts to Mountain View instead of ferries that end in Redwood City.
Here is the wiki article about hovercrafts. Web Link
The passenger service between the Isle of Wight and the mainland in Britain seems to be a similar type of service except that is a sea Bay rather than our inland Bay.
