Showcasing just how ridiculous things have become in San Francisco, The Atlantic introduces Leap Transit, a private bus service for commuters that provides a greeter, WiFi and fancy coffees for $6 per trip.

After a couple years of testing, the private line opened this week for service between the Marina District and downtown. It's sort of the anti-Muni for the young tech crowd. It looks chic and spacious, but taking a $6 ride means downloading the Leap app, creating an account, uploading a photo (required), entering credit-card information ... and that's as far as I got, because I'm fine taking Muni.
