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.

However, according to a Guardian report, the companies are identifiable by the colors of the buses: white for Google, silver for Apple and blue for Facebook (fb).
The chartered buses are unmarked and do not offer any visible connection to Google or Apple, Montiel said.
Five of the attacks happened in the morning and evening on Tuesday between Highway 84 in Woodside and Highway 85 in Cupertino. Consequently, Google is rerouting its shuttles from the highway as well. However, California Highway Patrol officer Art Montiel confirmed that an investigation with Apple is still ongoing. However, no injuries have been reported.
The buses does not show any logos of the companies that hired them.
In a report by Mashable they noted that "On an internal Apple email thread viewed by Mashable, one Apple employee speculated that the culprit may be firing "rubber rounds" at the buses". The protests that took place in 2013 and 2014 were in effect of anger over surveillance and automation, gentrification in the Bay Area and also due to the high salaries of tech company employees.
The first attack was reported on the evening of Friday 12 January, when Google' bus, shuttling employees between the company campus and San Francisco was attacked outside San Francisco. Of those, four involved Apple shuttle buses, while one was carrying Google employees.
He says another Apple bus had a window smashed last week. This change in routes could mean an additional 30-45 minutes of commute time in each direction for some riders. Apple later toldMashable that it is working with police to investigate the incidents.
