Eastern Bus and Today's bus was purchased by Megabus in Feb 2009, and still operate under their old logos. Because of so many buses and bus companies here, some of them began to play a cat-and-mouse game of double-parking and then driving away at the first sign of police. At Jamaica, walk next door to the AirTrain monorail terminal, pay the rip-off $5.00 to take you the rest of the way to the airport.
The Chinatown buses have long been my favorite method of transportation from NYC to Boston.
Flexibility – Except on major holidays, you can usually book your trip on the day of, or just show up at the station.
Location – Port Authority Bus Terminal smells, is confusing to navigate, and is filled with some scary people.
Prosperity Dumpling – This has zero to do with the buses themselves, but the most amazing dumplings are just around the corner from all the bus stops at 46 Eldridge St.
Lucky SStar is (as of this time) the last "Chinese-based" transportation between New York and Boston.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which regulates interstate bus travel, published a report detailing Lucky Star’s glaring lack of vehicle maintenance and employ of unmonitored drivers. Investigators found that Lucky Star’s buses had broken down 80 times in the last year alone, forcing passengers to “disembark along the highway.” Additionally, the report noted that the company did not regularly test drivers for drugs and alcohol or monitor their work hours. Lucky Star owner Edward Leung told the Boston Globe, “It happened so suddenly, I’m shocked.” He declined to comment further.

Although the carrier had had only one crash in the past two years, with no reported injuries, Lucky Star averaged 13 violations per bus over a three-year period.
According to the company’s website, customers who have already purchased tickets will be refunded.
Lucky Star will remain closed until it addresses the Department of Transportation’s safety concerns.

Bolt Bus free wireless internet on board, and loyalty program (currently, buy 8 trips and get 1 trip free).
Subsidized by the casinos, run by NJ Transit (ticketing system by amtrak), the Atlantic City Express Service (ACES) costs $39-$200 one-way, and only runs on weekends. This option is the fastest way of getting to JFK if you are located anywhere near ny penn station. Recently both the Lucky Star and Fung Wah bus companies were shut down by the government due to safety violations, but I’m happy to report that Lucky Star is BACK, and Fung Wah is probably not far behind. Many other budget-friendly bus lines make you hike it to 11th or 12th Avenue to board (there are no nearby subways). I'm rebranding as The Weekend Jetsetter, a name that spells out what I do (travel the world on weekends) a little better.
Department of Transportation shut down the Lucky Star bus line, which offered $15 trips to Boston from New York City’s Chinatown, just three months after shuttering Fung Wah, another Chinatown carrier.

Drivers received numerous citations for unsafe driving, speeding, improper lane changes, and failure to wear a seat belt. The only Boston-bound bus currently operating out of Chinatown is Yo Bus, a division of Greyhound Bus Lines, which began operating several weeks after Fung Wah shut down. Chinatown buses are easily accessible by subway station, plus they immediately exit Manhattan so you sit in less traffic than other departure points.
There’s typically no wifi or outlets on the Chinatown bus, even if they advertise that there is.
That way you don’t risk an obese woman shoveling fried chicken from KFC in her face the entire trip sitting next to you. One of the safety violations that Lucky Star was cited for was having a hole in their luggage compartment. Read the fine print: if you show up to check in less than 30 minutes before departure, they may have sold your seat to someone else.
Bring your Kindle, bring a magazine, download a movie to iTunes and don’t forget your back-up cell phone charger. Finally - people need to stop blaming these Chinatown buses for these news-worthy crashes.
