Feds: Boston-NYC Bus Service Must Cease Operations

This article is more than 7 years old.

A discount bus service from New York to Boston has been ordered to cease all operations, about a month after its operating license was revoked by federal regulators.

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said Thursday that additional inspection showed the Fung Wah bus service is a public safety hazard. The agency said the company failed to repair its vehicles, falsified inspection records and failed to meet drug and alcohol testing requirements.

Fung Wah's entire fleet was taken off the road in late February after Massachusetts inspectors found various problems, including cracked bus frames. Its operating license was pulled shortly after, when the company allegedly stopped cooperating with federal safety inspectors.

No one answered at New York numbers for Fung Wah and it was not possible to leave a message.
