On weekday mornings, tech workers line up at the bus stops on in San Francisco's Mission District to wait for the free private shuttles that  bring them to work in Silicon Valley. Corporate transit is nothing new, but the volume of people using it is, and San Francisco neighborhoods are starting to feel the change.

The Inner Mission is an especially popular area for tech workers. With companies like Yahoo, Google, EA, eBay, Apple, Visa and Genentech picking employees five days a week, you have a lot of people waiting at Muni stops for non-Muni buses. You can read and listen to the full story over at KALW, here.

Vehicles blocking bus stops delay service and block traffic. Are SF police aggressive about issuing fines to private bus drivers who block public bus stops?
