I like the idea, just make sure they don't say "We need to build a new bridge over Stevens Creek if we're going to do this."

Has Google considered a hovercraft?
Hovercraft do not need deep water as they hover on a cushion of air above the water. They would be able to run up a boat ramp in Mountain View and Google bikes could get the employees to their buildings. They would not be negotiating 101 so traffic would not cause them problems. They are faster than ferries and make more sense than ferries that need to be met by a bus.

Do these Google people who are supposed to be highly intelligent have any idea of what they are doing or even want?
They just repeatidly throw $$$$$$ at this issue with "zero" plan.
How about coming up with a solution or solutions and a plan that makes sense for everyone before just loading the shotgun and trying to hit something/anything. Then reload it with money and try again and again.
A well thought out goal that takes into consideration everyone involved, Google, employees, cities, motorist, residents and pedestrions in an empathic manner makes good business and community relation sense.
Come on smartest people on the planet, get it together and get it right the next time.
