In the Bay Area, Anti-Google Protests Get Creepy | Mother Jones
After ringing Levandowski’s doorbell and holding a banner that said, “Google’s Future Stops Here,” the Counterforce distributed their flyer to his neighbors and blocked his driveway for 45 minutes. Then they walked to the nearby Ashby BART station and blocked a Google bus for another half-hour before being dispersed by police.
For all that anybody knows, the Counterforce could just be a few college kids who’ve overdosed on Derrida and Adbusters. Ars Technica, which had the story first, was unable to reach them. What’s clear is that their harassment tactics put them in the same league as anti-abortion activists. Sophisticated public relations this is not.

Singling out employees does not change corporate culture. Stalking and attacking individuals is a sure fire way to lose public support. And this odd fixation against self driving cars just strikes me as strange.
Google’s Buses Help Its Workers Beat the Rush,
NYT, MIGUEL HELFT, March 10, 2007
The company now ferries about 1,200 employees to and from Google daily — nearly one-fourth of its local work force — aboard 32 shuttle buses equipped with comfortable leather seats and wireless Internet access. Bicycles are allowed on exterior racks, and dogs on forward seats, or on their owners’ laps if the buses run full. (...) “We are basically running a small municipal transit agency,” said Marty Lev, Google’s director of security and safety, who oversees the program.
