A bargain bus line popular with college students has pulled 21 of its 28 buses due to safety concerns. Local inspectors have found structural cracks in Fung Wah buses and now federal regulators are calling for the bus line to be shut down altogether, reports WCBS.
“We’re talking about a major safety concern. We’re not talking about trivial matters here. We’re talking about structural deficiencies in these buses that could cause a serious accident,” said Ann Berwick of the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.
Fung Wah has rented out buses from other companies to at least temporarily replace the out of repair fleet.
The company offers such low fares as 15 dollars from New York to Boston. WCBS talked to many of Fung Wah’s customers to gauge their reaction to the news.
