FMCSA Shuts Down Accident-Prone Bus Company

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration took the drastic step of shutting down the trouble-plagued Fung Wah Bus Transportation company, citing their refusal to cooperate with safety investigators.

‘Bus companies that jeopardize public safety and refuse to cooperate with our investigators have no place on the road, and now, thanks to our additional authority, we can take them off,’ said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. ‘Safety is our highest priority, and we will continue to do all we can to ensure that unsafe bus companies are not on our roads.’ 

The Boston-based bus company has a long history of accidents, including hitting two pedestrians in Brooklyn last January and a 2009 accident in Auburn, Mass., that sent 20 people to the hospital.

This is the first case of the FMCSA exercising its authority to “revoke the operating authority registration of a motor carrier that fails to comply with an administrative subpoena or a letter demanding release of company safety records.”
