Wednesday Wishlist: I Want VTA to use THESE Buses

Several months ago I caught a glimpse a bus on 101 that I could have sworn was a double-decker. I thought I was perhaps sleep deprived since I had never seen a two-story bus in Silicon Valley up until that point. The following week, I saw another one. The past couple weeks, I have seen 6 or 7 of them every day going home. I finally snapped a picture to prove I'm not crazy. Now that I've confirmed these exist in the Bay Area, how do we get VTA some of these? =)

Also, for those of you that work at Google, Facebook, or Apple... can anyone confirm which company is using the double-deckers?


  1. They are Google buses - as seen in linked video:

    1. Doh, the bus in the video is a normal bus. I was hoping to see the inside of the double-decker.

  2. Apple has similar buses, but they are silver with no lower windows.

  3. Google. I know ... I work there. These are very nice luxurious buses ... doubt they would ever be used for public transit.
