Facebook Bus Lanes
Restriping to Prioritize Transit
Greg served as Transportation Project Manager for Facebook, at the headquarters in Menlo Park. At the Classic Campus, during the PM peak period, vehicles exiting the parking lot queue up due to limited roadway capacity. This frequently results in travel times over 7 minutes for vehicles to exit the parking lot – including the shuttle bus fleet. Greg saw the opportunity to restripe the parking lot to create a Bus Only lane, so that shuttles could jump to the front of the queue. While the plan could have backfired if it caused substantial increased delay for cars, as Greg's analysis predicted, the additional delay to cars was not perceptible – but the buses have now shaved 7 minutes off their schedule.
