Leap's Private Shuttle Bus Goes Up on eBay

Just four months ago, a privately owned commuter shuttle bus company called Leap looked like it could be poised to offer San Francisco's Muni system some competition among the tech elite.

Now, it appears that the company is unloading its wheels to the highest bidder: SFist spotted an eBay listing showing that one of the buses is up for auction with a starting bid of $17,999.

Leap launched in March with five buses with leather interiors and amenities like onboard WiFi, Blue Bottle coffee and raw juices.

Two months later, Leap was off the road. The company tweeted on May 19 it was "going offline to deal with a regulatory issue."

According to SFGate, a complaint filed with the Department of Justice stated that Leap was in violation of the Americans With Disabilities act by not making buses wheelchair accessible.
