Comments on: Google’s BikerBelle promotes profiling on Google maps http://quickrelease.tv/?p=214 Bicycle videos and fluff Wed, 16 Apr 2014 10:10:08 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.6.5 By: Fritz http://quickrelease.tv/?p=214#comment-11737 Fritz Thu, 18 Oct 2007 22:08:28 +0000 http://quickrelease.tv/?p=214#comment-11737 Google provides hundreds of <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/bike/1012077169/" rel="nofollow">blue bikes</a> 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 <a href="http://www.cyclelicio.us/2007/08/yahoos-company-car.html" rel="nofollow">highest percentage of commuters</a> 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).

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.
