Before traveling to China in 2006, tour guide Amy Chin believed that the homegrown Chinatown commuter buses were a New York phenomenon. "When I was in Beijing," she said, "I was traveling to nearby city called Tangshan. When I asked how to get there I was directed to a disheveled man on a street corner sitting on a stool selling bus tickets. I suddenly realized where the idea came from!"
