And here’s the rare Google Bus what doesn’t go to Mountain View – it was labeled SBO-SFO, I assume because it goes to the YouTube facility in the part of San Bruno what didn’t get blown up by PG&E:

What other big local outfits drive interstate-type buses about the 415? Apple? That’s the only one I can think of.

Keep on keeping on, our corporate overlords…

Competitors tended to bunch up into clumps on the straights and then stretch out into a line in the high-speed turns. Click to enlarge:
