Private Bus (Zynga) - San Francisco  2013

Actually, in this case, a Zynga Bus (parked in front of Zynga HQ in San Francisco's SOMA district).

From a recent George Packer article in The New Yorker:

A lot of younger employees of Silicon Valley companies live in the city and commute to work in white, Wi-Fi-equipped company buses, which collect passengers at fifteen or so stops around San Francisco. The buses - whose schedules are withheld from the public - have become a vivid emblem of the tech boom's stratifying effect in the Bay Area.

And just one more obstacle for motorists trying to navigate into San Francisco using Lombard and Van Ness.
