Last week, private transportation company Leap launched a new shuttle-bus service in San Francisco, designed to feel “more like a living room than a bus”. With free WiFi, USB ports and laptop stations for use – and not to mention the freshly-pressed organic juices and local snacks for sale – a trip aboard the Leap
bus will set riders back $6 (juice not included)
for a one-way journey from uptown to tech-town. For San Francisco’s smartphone users (of course, there’s an app for it), the service takes “the hassles out of getting to work”, ferrying commuters to a hub of tech and start-up offices in the city’s core.
