Last spring’s Bronx bus accident that killed 14 people contributed to an in-depth investigation of dozens of bus lines that carry nearly 2,000 passengers from New York City to various cities up and down the East Coast. The result was the shutting down of 26 discount bus lines. The so-called “Chinatown buses” were responsible for a series of deadly accidents, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration found the bus lines pose “an imminent threat to public safety.” Anyone who has ever ridden a Black Leopard bus, one of the Manhattan-based carriers that was shut down, is likely to join me in saying “Good riddance.” (Fung Wah, pictured above smashing into a truck, is not one of the shut down carriers.)
