Google is now ferrying its workers around San Francisco in a private catamaran

As criticism of Googles private shuttle bus service for employees living in San Francisco has reached new heights, the company quietly turned its eyes to the sea. CBS is reporting that Google has contracted a private catamaran called The Triumphant that ferries workers from San Francisco bay to Redwood City, California, about halfway to the companys global headquarters in Mountain View, California. Presumably, then Google employees hop out and take a bus the remaining 14 miles. For Google, it reportedly makes two trips daily, one in the morning and one at night, and can hold up to 149 passengers at capacity. But thats not likely to quell the growing tide of concern that Google and other Bay Area tech companies with private worker shuttles are isolating themselves from those outside the industry.
