A Ferry Tale

Look! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a way to get out of town without battling 101 gridlock!

Yep, Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation saves the day with its new fleet of ecofriendly commuter buses. Called Wi-Drive, the Hampton Jitney-meets-Google shuttle coach line is the first Bay Area luxury green commuter service for the masses (hurrah!).

Tricked out with Wi-Fi, iPods, LCD screens, tables, and attendants, buses also offer Peet’s coffee along with Specialty’s breakfasts in the morning and Popchips snacks at night.

For now, Wi-Drive does round-trips ($5-$9 one-way) from the city to Marin and San Jose, with more routes coming soon.

Man, that’s super.

For more information and to see schedules, go to bauerswi-drive.org. Enter code DAILYCANDY in the comments box when booking by March 17 to receive two complimentary round-trips, one breakfast, and one coffee.
