Mapping Silicon Valley’s gentrification problem through corporate shuttle routes


Every day, Silicon Valley’s elite tech companies send buses into San Francisco to pick up and drop off their young, wealthy employees.

ok, so let me get this right … carpooling is ok from the suburbs to the city but not the other way around? the issue of inequity has nothing to do with corporate efficiency. it has to do with society’s moral compass. work on the compass, but carpooling should never be dissed.

Ed Lee does whatever tech people tell him to do. Jump, and he says how many I tweets do I get if I do that. Bah!
