Silicon Valley is a hotbed for technology innovation. And that also includes the transportation sector. The region gave rise to ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft. And now a new player appeals to those who are caught between taking a bus or calling that ride-sharing service.
The bus ?Leap? features a manager for service, plush leather armchairs, free Wi-Fi and even a bar-like countertop for those who want to work.
Customers can board using their smartphone or via Bluetooth ? just have your phone inside your pocket and it will automatically check in.Co-founder Kyle Kirchhoff says Leap bought five used buses and worked with a top architecture firm to redesign the experience from scratch.
