Ray Kelly creates an Asian crime task force to investigate the bloodshed, citing strong-arm methods, vandalism of buses, and possible gang and mob ties. A Fung Wah bus catches fire en route to New York; 45 passengers are evacuated just before flames engulf the bus.

According to Business Week, US Department of Transportation just shut down three companies that control 26 bus lines that run out of Chinatown due to safety concerns. The Chinatown buses have long been the ride of choice for college students and deal seekers making the trek from New York City to Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, and other destinations along the I-95 corridor. In a timely coincidence, Business Insider's Vivian Giang had her own Fung Wah horror story this week. Americans love their cars, but concerns over gas prices and the environment are likely to keep them open to alternatives. I tend to take the train rather than the bus – between Philly and NYC and Philly and Vermont. Train travel tends to be more comfortable than bus travel though more expensive in terms of the recent budget buses.
Unfortunately, I have not actually been to your country, so naturally, I do not have any experiences with busses in the U.S, and I am not able to make informed comment with regards to the convenience or comfort associated with this means of travel in your country. That said, I have been travelling by long distance bus in Korea for four years, and I love it.
Whenever I have visitors from Europe they say we’re so behind the times in the US and that rail is the way to go. It would be an intriguing change for the States to have a greater focus on train travel especially a high-speed rail. The last trip by bus I took was after spending the night stranded in an airline terminal when my flight was cancelled.
I take the commuter train often and it is a great feeling as we are riding side by side with the interstate Hwy and all of the cars are stopped and gridlocked and the train is cruising along at 75mph!
This is one change that I am all for, people should avail of public transport whenever they can, if not to save some money then definetely to save our environment. I am in agreement with George, MegaBus (operating in the US, UK & Canada) provides excellent service in the Northeast Corridor Philly to NYC. I would also like to add that while many people compare our lack of rail service to Europe’s, the size and space that an American system would need to cover to reach population dense areas would be cost prohibitive.

Boston-based bus service Lucky Star was closed by the feds for failing to meet safety regulations, to inspect or repair buses, document drivers’ hours, or require drivers to pass drug and alcohol tests before transporting passengers. Lucky Star, which has 21 buses, is the latest in a federal crackdown on intercity curbside buses, particularly in New York City’s Chinatown.
Chen said that the buses connect to 233 routes, transporting between five and six million people per year. In 2006, Chen and others proposed a bus shelter to bring the buses to a single location and provide amenities for waiting passengers. However, Chen thinks that the legislation will improve the climate for buses in Chinatown by making them more reliable and allowing them to compete with bigger companies that have benefited from closing Chinatown routes, such as Greyhound, which operates BoltBus and has recently opened a Chinatown service. Chin, who sponsored the new city law, believes the legislation, which requires the city’s Department of Transportation to provide a link to intercity bus safety records on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety website, will encourage bus companies to play by the rules by making sure passengers have easy access to safety records before purchasing a ticket. No changing of place at a hundred miles an hour will make us one whit stronger, or happier, or wiser. The VillagerSpecial election was a slugfest and we all lostPier 40 air rights appraised at $75 million; St.
But turf wars and safety problems—culminating in last week’s fatal crash—soon undermined the dream. Business Week reports that federal investigators have been looking into the companies over the last year after a series of accidents. A nation that prides itself on traveling by automobile is starting to see ultra cheap bus tickets that are too attractive to pass up. If buses prices continue to drop, inter-city bus travel will persevere in the coming years.

I can see cheap bus travel working well in between certain routes especially with low fares. It’s cheap, easy, comfortable, convenient and I find travelling time to be a wonderful time to relax, read a book, study some Korean or just sit back and enjoy the scenery of the beautiful countryside.
I hope even more people will take advantage of taking a bus to be more environment friendly. The bill was signed by Mayor Bloomberg a few days after another major bus service was shut down by the U.S. The Boston Herald reported the company also had a bus in operation with a 4-by-2-foot hole in its floor.

Chinatown is a hub — a giant transportation hub,” said Wellington Chen, president of the Chinatown Partnership Business Improvement District.
The buses make relatively short commutes to Boston, but some lines can be found that transport people all the way down the East Coast to Atlanta, Georgia and Orlando, Florida. The push by her office to regulate bus safety standards began in March of 2011, when a passenger carrier crashed in the Bronx, killing 15 people. Daniel Squadron and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was passed in August to allow the city to monitor the bus industry. While the company has a good safety rating, it only registered one mile driven on the Safety Measurement System, the most common safety rating website provided by the U.S. Bus is currently the only operator of non-stop intercity bus service that runs from Boston to NYC’s Chinatown.
How could it ever hope to survive when their population base consists mainly of Chinese elderly and young, unskilled illegal Fujian immigrants. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. There was always more in the world than man could see, walked they ever so slowly; they will see it no better for going fast.

Much of the car journey anywhere in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic take forever because of the sheer number of cars on the road. The bus smelled like gas both on the way up and on the way back home which kind of made me feel sick. Not to mention that the close proximity to others lends itself to chatting with others including locals. Ming An issued its last ticket shortly after, leaving a hole in the business nearly as large as the one Lucky Star was driving around with.
That’s especially true in the Northeast corridor with the popular route from New York to Boston that is served by Chinatown buses. Throw in President Obama’s recent proposal for a high-speed rail, and the nation may be moving in a new direction.
