The San Francisco - Silicon Valley Commute via Tech Shuttle Bus

October 26, 2012

What a beautiful and useful map of the tech shuttle routes from San Francisco to Silicon Valley by local design firm Stamen.

In real estate terms, the impact of these private bus lines shuttling the Bay Area's tech workers from San Francisco to Silicon Valley is multi-faceted: 

  • Building community for those on the bus,
  • Increasing San Francisco home values along the routes,
  • And decreasing traffic on the 101 and 280.

And, it must be said, increasing discontent amongst those neighbors who preferred their sleepy, MUNI-free blocks to remain void of large, luxury vans and buses.

Many Silicon Valley companies offer private buses to help their workers reduce commute stress and increase productivity. For the purposes of the map, Stamen chose to track the big hitters: Apple, eBay, Electronic Arts, Yahoo, Google, & Facebook. But I know that Genentech's bus is a big draw, too. Just ask my friends and clients from our HGTV House Hunters episode. Living two blocks from their shuttle stop had huge appeal for these San Francisco home buyers!

As a top San Francisco real estate agent, I work with a lot of folks from the tech industry.

It's not unusual for a client to bring me a map of their company's bus stops because living within walking distance is a non-negotiable for their new home.

This is true for listings too. Sellers will highlight the access of their home to the tech shuttle stops whether or not they use them personally.
