Google patents a service that involves a free ride for shopping

Posted Jan 25, 2014

Google has patented an idea where the search giant would provide a free ride to a store. The store would be connected to Google as a partner. However, Google will review the person’s information to determine what kind of transportation that they should offer.

The person’s information includes location, job, and purchasing history. The businesses will provide the money for the arrangement. If the customer is high-profile, then they would be given VIP treatment. People that do not fit the requirements will get discounted tickets and reduced taxi fares. You can read the filing here.
