According to San Francisco’s KPIX, Google has started testing a new shuttle service for employees. Rather than a car, bus, or train, however, Google plans to use a boat to ferry workers to its campus. The privately-owned Triumphant has been chartered to carry 150 employees to and from work every weekday.

The ferry, which will run between Redwood City and San Francisco and back again twice each day, is one of the new ideas Google has been working on to more efficiently transport employees to work. If the pilot program is successful, Google may consider expanding its fleet and ferrying even more workers from more locations. Whether the additional ferries will navigate themselves or be controlled by horrifying, life-like automatons is anyone’s guess.
