    Google is working to address concerns over its commuter buses in Los Gatos.

    The company employs several shuttles to carry workers to and from the Google campus in Mountain View every morning and evening.

    But while the approach may seem like the "green" thing to do, parents in Los Gatos say the buses pose a safety hazard for kids.

    They tell the San Jose Mercury News that the buses park in a no parking zone in front of a Presbyterian church.

    The Googlers park in the church parking lot and wait for any of five buses between 7:20 a.m. and 10:25 a.m.

    In response Google adjusted its route to address some of those concerns. Starting Wednesday, shuttles will pull into Church parking lot in the hopes of making life easier for kids trying to get to school.

    The Los Gatos town manager wants Google to take things a step further and formalize an agreement with the Presbyterian Church.
