Targeted by Feds, Bus Company Charters Vehicles To Escape Shutdown

Fung Wah Bus Transportation, Inc. has found a way around a federal order to “immediately cease passenger service” by contracting outside charter buses to transport passengers back and forth from South Station to New York City.

On Tuesday, The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issued the shutdown order after a WBZ-TV I-Team investigation that found major safety concerns on a number of the company’s buses.

An FMCSA spokesperson later clarified the order, saying it only prohibits Fung Wah from transporting passengers in its 28 buses.
