Mapping Silicon Valley’s Gentrification Problem Through Corporate Shuttle Routes

Standard

Where’s the densest place in the Bay Area, the place where the largest numbers of people can use the smallest numbers of buses? By this logic it’s not the hipsters that have chosen to gentrify San Francisco, but the Facebooks and the Googles who are incidentally causing this kind of development through the simple calculus of where they can house the most workers. That those workers are young and educated and lots of them are millionaires is kind of beside the point. Only a map is going to lead you to this kind of thinking.
