Hitchhiking A Tech Shuttle

on Monday, Oct. 21st

KALW reporter Christina Loring has friends who work in technology, but that didn’t help her out much when she decided to see if she could hitch a ride on one of the private tech shuttles that seem to be ubiquitous on San Francisco streets these days.

“My plan was: wear all black, some nice shiny red shoes, glue my eyes to my phone screen, and clutch my bright blue backpack. I’m 28, white, and blonde. I don’t have any Google gear, so I thought this was the next best thing. At first, things were going great.”
