    Private shuttles to get their own stop.

    The private motor coaches that ferry tech workers to Silicon Valley jobs will get slightly less wild.

    A dedicated 80-foot private shuttle stop will be installed at Van Ness Avenue and Union Street, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The stop will be there in about a month and will be reserved for "private shuttle service" on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m.

    There's another private shuttle stop at Eighth and Market streets, the newspaper reported.

    Giving the shuttles their own stops might help stop the squabbling between Muni buses and the private shuttles. The private motor coaches often use Muni stops to pick up and drop off workers, according to reports.
