Google has been providing bus transport for its residents in Oakland, but other residents aren't impressed by the company's efforts. Upset about the influx of tech workers and the subsequent rise in housing costs, protesters attacked a Google bus headed to Mountain View on Friday. 

Protesters also stopped an Apple bus Friday and another Google bus two weeks ago. But yesterday's incident was the first to turn violent, as the protesters broke a window. The protesters previously demanded Google pay $1 billion for affordable housing, but now they're demanding the tech workers leave Oakland.
