That’s what Linh Hoang Nguyen did 17 years ago when he launched his small bus line which shuttles passengers daily from Little Saigon in Orange County, California to San Jose, reporta Anh Do of the Los Angeles Times.

Nguyen used to make the frequent trip from John Wayne Airport to San Jose and noticed many Vietnamese Americans made the same trip as well. He thought there had to be a better way.

“There should be a service that brings them where they need to be — in an easier way,” he told himself.

He soon launched the Xe Do Hoang bus line which now has a fleet of 11 buses and 15 drivers shuttling people to San Jose, Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco and Phoenix. The trip from Little Saigon to San Jose, the nation’s two largest Vietnamese American communities, is $45.

You can get a sense of what the Xe Do Hoang bus line means to the Vietnamese American community in the Los Angeles Times.
