Probably. Having worked at Microsoft HQ, they actually had taxi shuttle things that could take you from one building to another, so there's no way Apple doesn't have something similar.

The shuttles are 20 min intervals

Insider info here:
The underground parking was full at 1/4 capacity, so they had to build another lot
This lot is up to 20 mins away
The cafeterias ability to churn out food are full at 1/2 capacity
There is like 6 tables tot
The glass doors have shattered already

thot it didnt have 'HVAC', as such?
- "Rather than using air conditioning, 4,300 hollow concrete slabs act as the floors, ceilings and HVAC system, funnelling cool and warm air through the offices, in effect making it a ‘breathing’ building.."
in principle, sounds worthy and all - practice tho, when you are overcrowding offices, co-workers with differing cultural hygiene, etc. idk, just interested this would (or wouldnt) work

Since nobody posted it, this was a plan originally proposed by Steve Jobs, a few months before he died, at the Cupertino city council. He was asking for permission to proceed with the project.
