Protesters upset by evictions block Apple, Google buses in Bay Area 

Protesters blocked buses said to be operated by Google and Apple in San Francisco and Oakland on Friday, the latest sign of a growing backlash against the booming tech industry’s impact on access to affordable housing in the region.
About 40 protesters surrounded a corporate bus in the Mission district as it was picking up employees for the morning commute, preventing it from leaving for about 30 minutes.
The company for which the bus was headed was not immediately clear. A small sign in the front window said only “Main Campus, Ridgeview.” Apple does have offices on Ridgeview Court, not far from its headquarters in Cupertino, California, 40 miles south of San Francisco.
