I guess it's rail related since the next phase involves extending Caltrain (and possibly California HSR) to the terminal.

Oh great. Can't wait to catch my train from Salesforce Transit Center to Google Terminal via Facebook Junction, making intermediate stops at Microsoft Station and Snapchat Halt.

You will only stop at Microsoft Station if traveling on the Cascades.

Microsoft has a pretty big presence in Mountain View which happens to be a station on Caltrain SalesforceTM Train route.

I've used the Mountain View station, which is a primary Caltrain station and an important transfer point to VTA. That's also the Mountain View transit center where lots of companies operate shuttles to their worksites. I know a lot of companies get grief for their employee buses that have affected the housing market and reduces use of public transit, but they do provide transit links. At Mountain View I've seen shuttles for Apple and Microsoft.

Could have been the "Dewey, Cheatem & How Terminal" if that well-known law firm had bought the rights.

But before you stop at Microsoft, you'll have to stop on the main to reboot first.

Google has a much bigger presence (it is home of the mothership).

 

I think it more likely that Oracle would shell out for the naming rights to the train route.  They want their headquarters to be in Silicon Valley really bad....

Only if the new owner of GE Lighting figures out how it's going to do it.  General Electric has basically divested itself of all its consumer product divisions and licenses the name.  I'm not sure how that works.

I was thinking of its commercial lighting.

That's a different division, but they don't really even call it GE any more.  Eventually I'm guessing that "Current" is going to be a standalone entity and possibly spun off.

 

In other news, Sacramento is planning on selling corporate naming rights for both its convention center and transit station.
