Google provides hundreds of blue bikes for intracampus travel around their HQ in Mountain View, but beyond that I don’t know if they’re any more bike friendly than other large companies in the SF Bay Area.
A big minus for Google, in fact, is that they run their own private transit service instead of participating in and contributing to the public transportation incentive programs available here. 25% of Google’s workforce uses Google’s private buses; they’re equipped with bike racks but I’ve *never* seen a bike on them.
I believe Yahoo has the highest percentage of commuters who don’t drive to work at 36%, with a fair number of them riding bikes. In my building at Sun Microsystems, we have between 5% to 10% who cycle to work when the weather is nice.
Google’s Boulder office is located on a pedestrian mall where parking is very limited, and the nearest parking is a block away. Your only real options are walking or biking to work (and bicycling is actually prohibited on the Pearl Street Mall anyway). The Boulder transit center is about a block and half away on Walnut Street; anybody who drives to work there is a fool.]]>
