Due to the potential targeting, the two tech giants made a decision to alter the usual routes, causing "an additional 30-45 minutes of commute time in each direction", according to an email from "The Apple Commute Team" obtained by Mashable. One incident reportedly happened outside Los Altos Hills, while another took place near the town of Woodside. This should explain the recent cases of attacks on shuttle buses used to ferry workers of the respective companies while en route to the office and back.
Doug Bloch, a representative for the Teamsters unit, said that only the outer layer of the buses' double-paned windows cracked, suggesting that the projectiles lacked the force of bullets.
Buses carrying Google and Apple employees from San Francisco to their respective headquarters buildings in Mountain View and Cupertino have been attacked, according to multiple sources.
The union representing shuttle drivers who drove two of the Apple buses struck Tuesday, Teamsters Local 853, described the incidents as a "pellet gun attack" in a statement. Following the incidents, both the tech firms have rerouted employee buses keeping in mind the safety of their employees. According to an email sent to Apple staff, the first attack took place last Friday, followed by four more on Tuesday. According to reports, pellet guns were used to execute the attack. California Highway Patrol (CHP) is working with Apple to investigate.
Apple Insider has learned that at least four buses have obtained damage while driving down highway 280.
The cracked windows did not injure anyone but Apple shifted shuttles to a longer route as a precaution. It's unclear if the attack, which broke a window on the bus, was carried out by the same perpetrator.
Montiel added that he had received no reports that other buses, like Greyhound buses, had been targeted.
"It appears that they're going after the unmarked tech buses", CHP spokesman Officer Art Montiel told the newspaper.
