Yahoo! Bus Stop Derby

Those of us who take public transportation to get to and from work every day know the daily grind gets boring. Yahoo!'s latest effort to capitalize on the time spent while waiting at bus stops is a competition that may just want to make you miss your bus!

Yahoo! put up 20 Bus Stop Derby bus stops in various neighborhoods throughout San Francisco. With interactive 72-inch touch screens, Yahoo! developed four addictive games that you can play right then and there while waiting for your bus. The games can be played alone, but Yahoo! encourages players to challenge commuters at the other Derby stops to play live head-to-head games. The Derby competition pits 20 neighborhoods against each other. The grand prize is an OK GO concert that takes place in the neighborhood that wins.
