Apple shuttle, car wash
Apple is launching a free shuttle service for its employees on Monday to ferry workers between strategic points in the Bay Area and the Cupertino-based campus. The buses, which Apple is reportedly renting to provide transportation to its workers, will begin running on Monday, October 22nd. The shuttle service includes 12 stops in the city of San Francisco, several locations around Daly City, and numerous pickup/drop off points in Fremont. The high-tech buses provide seats with individual power connectors to run as well as charge notebooks while in-transit, and every bus comes equipped with Wi-Fi for internet connectivity. [Information was first noted by Italian site setteB.IT.]
Apple has also signed an agreement with Siteler Wash that will bring the automobile cleaning service to various parking lots at the Cupertino campus four times per week. The car wash will help keep clean vehicles belonging to those Apple employees who still wish or are forced to drive their own vehicles.
Vehicle owners who subscribe to the car wash program by December 21st will also receive gift certificates for future car washes, according to the report.
