Buses carrying tech workers targeted outside San Francisco

Buses carrying tech workers targeted outside San Francisco

Shuttle buses that serve as transit for Apple and Google employees are now being forced to reroute after a string of alleged attacks broke the vehicles' windows in recent weeks.

Companies like Google and Apple run commuter buses in the areas around their campuses, giving employees a way to commute to and from work for free.

The union representing shuttle drivers who drove two of the Apple buses struck Tuesday, Teamsters Local 853, described the incidents as a "pellet gun attack" in a statement. The buses were attacked on highway 280, so the company has chose to divert them from that road, even though doing so would extend the commute time by 30-45 minutes in either direction.

It is reported that the first incident occurred last week on Friday, when an Apple shuttle bus was traveling from the Cupertino, California headquarters to San Francisco. The attacks happened on January 12 and January 16.

But it was not immediately clear how or why Moscow would heed Washington's oft-repeated demands. That's highly unlikely, as the safe zones were negotiated largely by Russia, Turkey, and Iran.

The Guardian confirmed the attacks with California highway patrol public information officer Art Montiel.

Interestingly, the buses involved in this latest incident don't include branding indicating they come from a major tech corporation.

Apple and Google might be rivals on the tech scene but seem to have a common enemy, one that seems keen to take things to a more physical level. Following the incidents, both the tech firms have rerouted employee buses keeping in mind the safety of their employees. This change in routes might add 30-45 minutes to commute time in each direction for some riders.

No one was hurt in any of the incidents, but the CHP is taking this very seriously and are out patrolling for whoever is responsible because this is a very reckless thing to do.

The reason behind the attacks also isn't too hard to guess given that the rapid influx of tech employees in the San Francisco area have not been taken too kindly by the original residents.

Photos sent by an anonymous Apple employee to the website Mashable showed the broken windows on Apple employee shuttle buses.

The CHP is working with Apple on the investigation.
