  • Little Saigon Shuttle

  • Little Saigon Shuttle Begins October 31

    The Little Saigon Shuttle is free to passengers thanks to Measure M funds, Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements. This service is provided in partnership with the City of Westminster and the Orange County Transportation Authority.

    Instead of dealing with traffic congestion and competing for parking spaces, the free bus shuttle service will safely and conveniently transport you to 22 different destinations along its route on: Bolsa Avenue, Brookhurst Street, Bishop Place and Magnolia Street.

    There will be a bus every 20 minutes or so to take you, your friends and loved ones to the thousands of businesses, community centers and other destinations in the heart of Little Saigon. Buses run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

     

    Visit authentic Vietnamese restaurants, markets, shops and more with this free service that eliminates the stress and hassle of driving and parking.

    Home to the largest group of Vietnamese outside of Vietnam, Little Saigon is a vibrant community in Westminster. The Little Saigon Shuttle is a great way to connect with thousands of shops, restaurants, community centers and other destinations along the 2.5-mile route.

    When the bus arrives at any of the 22 pick-up places, climb aboard with your family and friends, relax, and leave the driving to the Little Saigon Shuttle. Each bus has 20 seats and travels in a loop around Bolsa Avenue, Brookhurst Street, Bishop Place and Magnolia Street daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Your comments went far to help us deliver this project

    Your comments and suggestions have contributed to what we hope will be a successful service for the community.

    Throughout the month of September, we talked 2,000 people in Little Saigon and received enthusiastic feedback on the three design options available for the Little Saigon Shuttle.

    James and Katie Tran of Westminster are among the many in the community who have reacted positively to the proposed launch of the new service.

    "This service is necessary in such a busy area," said James Tran, who chose the design of a woman wearing an "Aa Dai," the Vietnamese traditional dress, for what the bus will look like. "The service will help with the traffic problem, and the design most resembles the culture of Vietnam."

    The Trans were not alone in their preference for this design, which was the clear winner from more than 1,000 survey responses submitted.

    After receiving the community’s in-person, online and mail-in comments, the responses were compiled into the infographic below.
