Suggested Bus Routes

Chinatowns have been linked by bus lines for over a decade. The bus market has gotten more crowded in recent years, and now we have the so-called Hipster Express from U Street to Atlantic Terminal (now unpolluted by Manhattan!). But why stop there? Ours is an age of convenience. For you transportation entrepreneurs, we have a few suggestions of identity-appropriate lines that would give you a competitive edge. For would-be New York-D.C. migrants, if you're feeling unrepresented by our ideas, feel free to leave your desired routes in the comments.

(And yes, Frank Rich and other Washingtonians-turned-New York boosters, we know there's just no comparison between the two cities. We don't want to hear it.)
