Google with public transport?

I'll thought that I would post this on the San Jose forum as it is closer distance wise then San Francisco. My question is it possible to get to Google with public transport? or if not is it possible go public transport some of the way then a taxi?. My travelling companion really wants to see Google even just the outside. I've seen that you can get to Mountain View with public transport, is it possible from there?

Thanks

Yes, if you don't mind walking about 1.5 miles.

I spent for three months every winter in silicon valley without a car. I know the bus is available to Google at Charleston; VTA #40, one in every hour. The bus stop is located in front of Google Building 43. You dont have to walk about 1.5 miles.

From Mountain View #34 goes to San Antonio Transit Center to change to #40:

However the availability of #34 is five buses in a day. If you come from San Francisco, you may walk about 1/2 mile from Cal Train San Antonio station to VTA Bus Transit at the shopping center for your short cut to catch #40.

The following is the VTA route map. VTA is a good public transportation system in valley, particularly Light Rail is great.

Google to Mountain View is just about 2 miles; I walked one time after the meetup late at night.
