Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation (“Bauer’s IT”) is a leading provider of sustainable, luxury ground transportation solutions. With headquarters located in San Francisco, Bauer’s IT additionally operates from satellite yards in Santa Clara, California.  In addition to catering to our private and corporate clients, we offer a variety of iTransportation ® solutions to Transit Systems, Government Facilities, Academic Institutions, Hotels, Airports, and Affiliate Transportation Managers, providing them with one of the largest fleets in the country.  Bauer’s excels in bringing passengers safely and reliably to their desired destination.

As one of the premier sustainable, luxury transportation companies, Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation believes that it can make a difference in the environment while enhancing our client experiences.  Through Bauer’s Be Clean, Go Green ® bus rental programs, up to 97% of the miles driven with our vehicles are using alternative fuels such as compressed natural gas, bio-diesel, and propane.  Bauer’s IT also has a vast fleet of eco-friendly luxury motor coaches, shuttles, and sedans, as well as friendly and knowledgeable staff to provide clients a memorable experience with the highest level of service and quality.

The company was recently bestowed with the honor of United Motorcoach Association’s prestigious “Green Highway” Award for the greenest transportation company in America.

What Makes Us Different

Not all transportation companies are alike. At Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation, we believe that our experience, attention to detail, quality assurance, and comprehensive training set us apart.

  • State of the art equipment – less than 3 years old on vehicles designed for up to 37 passengers; and less than 4 ½ years old on motor coaches designed for 52 passengers or more
  • All drivers have at minimum 2 weeks of in-house training
  • Smith System training – top defensive driving course in the country

Fuel Conservation Training

Bauer’s leads the industry with chauffeur training focused specifically on teaching and educating chauffeurs how to conserve fuel as they drive.  The way a coach is operated greatly impacts fuel usage. With the Bauer’s GPS speed monitoring system, it is easy for chauffeurs to monitor and sustain speeds that are conducive to the most efficient fuel impact.  Bauer’s also teaches chauffeurs about the impact of unnecessary idling, which wastes fuel and creates unnecessary pollution.

Additionally, Bauer’s sends its mechanics out to be trained not only on the newest fleet engines, but on how to maintain the vehicles to enhance fuel mileage and transmission performance so that each vehicle performs at its best.


BIT Technology – Bauer’s uses advanced BIT smart technology on all vehicles to enhance training efforts and show what happens when certain diagnostic and G force parameters are exceeded. Additionally, Bauer’s has taken technology much further and merged the “Intelligent Transportation” with their Eco-efforts.

Dispatch Monitoring – Bauer’s employs state of the art GPS technology to monitor vehicles for traffic patterns, flight updates, speed and idling. Results are monitored by the Bauer’s dispatch team 24/7 365 days a year on four 42-inch flat monitor screens.

Fleet Upgrades

At Bauer’s, updating our fleet is a continuous process, selling over 30 vehicles each year and replacing them with hybrids, CNG, propane or bio-diesel engines. By continuing to purchase the newest vehicles in the industry, Bauer’s can provide you with the newest technology and industry innovations.

    I have been working at Bauer's Intelligent Transportation full-time (More than a year)


    Being in the sales department, the compensation structure is unlimited. The more work you put in to build your book of business the more you will get out of it. It is a lot of hard work but after a few months you will see the results.


    There are a lot of long hours but what job is actually 9-5? You get what you put into it.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bauer's Intelligent Transportation.


    I applied for driver postion without having my class b license. I was denied instantly because of lack of experence. I recieved an email from hr stating if i had any questions to contact him. We were able to get into contact woth each other and said he would keep my application on file for a year until i get my CDL. Two weeks later i recieved email to come in for interview . He asked me to bring a dmv printout. Which i did. I interviewed with 4 people that day. With that being said. They told me to wait for a call back. They called me in for another interview , whixh at that time i would would be interviewing with the head of the car side as well as drug test and road test amd wear a suit. At this point. I spent over $200 for a suit just to look the part they needed me to do
    Now lets go back t ok the first time i came for interview. As i stated i talked with four people and they all seen my dmv printout. Things that showed up over 10 years ago, when i lost my mother, my house, my car everything. I wasnt worried about going to court to pay off tickets. Mentally i wasnt there and they used it against me. After reviewing my H-6 . This is the point where i feel they should have pusbed my hiring packet to the CEO. So no further interviews could be made. Instead...So back to the 2nd time i came in for interview playing the roll.Took both driving and drug test. They told me they would call me if they wanted to continue the process. 4 days later, im stressing over everything i recieved a call stating they wamted me to meet with the Ceo and Vice president of the company. At this point any person would think everything is a Legit. I got the job.I then interviewed with 2 people before the final interview. Once i got to the main office i then interviewed with Ceo and Vp and the original guy who interviewed me who took my dmv printout day one. I left that interview with a wierd uneasy feeling. And was told they would call me to let me know if i was hired or not. I wasnt.
