CBS reports on the 150-passenger boat Google has rented to get some of its staff into work.

Just as Bay Area high-tech firms such as Google have been using private shuttle buses to transport their workers to their jobs, Google is taking it to another level with its own ferry service on San Francisco Bay.

Google has contracted with a private firm to provide a catamaran to ferry its workers from San Francisco to Redwood City.

According to the Port of San Francisco, Google is providing the service on a trial basis and paying the port for each docking just like any other short-term users of port facilities.
