Direct commuter shuttles between cities and suburbs

MagicBus runs shuttles that transport commuters between cities and suburbs. We accomplish this by letting riders book ahead of time, and creating routes on-the-fly in response to demand. This allows us to provide direct routes for employees with long commutes who would otherwise drive to work.

We built this product from the ground up. Our MVP was us driving, coordinating via text messages with our earliest customers, and taking them to work from Palo Alto to San Francisco, etc.

We’d be happy to answer your questions!

I love magicbus. I use it every day to commute from SF to Mountain View and it's by far the best option. Faster than caltrain/public transportation, much cheaper than Uber, and more efficient than driving. It's basically the Google shuttle for everyone else.

@snowmaker how much, for your daily commute?

@mjmcclain $14 each way. Much cheaper than what I was doing earlier - Caltrain + Uber - and faster too.
