Tim Cook on Cars
Over the years, Tim Cook repeatedly talked about cars – even when the context of all of those comments was something completely different each time.
I have been collecting all the statements in order to get a feel how the company talks about transportation.
So here is Cook on cars, his own words:

Here is a quote from Apple’s sustainability reports, so it’s not directly from Cook, but certainly related:
As we shrink the carbon footprint of Apple’s facilities, we’re also continuing to look for ways to reduce carbon emissions from business fleet vehicles, employee commute, and business travel. […] To encourage electric vehicle use, we also offer our employees over 550 electric vehicle charging ports, at no cost – an increase of 67 percent compared to last year – and we continue to add more to meet increased demand.
We also offer our U.S. employees a transit subsidy of up to $100 per month, and we grew our bus commute program in Santa Clara Valley and China to reduce the use of single-occupancy vehicles. At all of our campuses in the U.S., we offer a total of more than 2300 EV charging stations, which help our employees transition to electric vehicles. Further, we offer campus bicycles and a dedicated bus commute program to facilitate employee commute through mass transit, which we estimate avoided over 6000 metric tons in fiscal year 2019.
Here is a screenshot from that report:
