“Chinatown” Bus Companies Shut Down For Safety Violations

Must Read

Last year's bus crash in the Bronx killed 15 passengers, all of them Chinatown residents.

Federal regulators have shut down more than two dozen bus companies providing interstate service between Chinatown and major cities along the East Coast.  The crackdown, announced this morning, was the result of an ongoing investigation that began after last year’s deadly bus crash in the Bronx that claimed the lives of 15 Chinatown residents.

The regulators targeted three companies (and their many affiliates) for safety violations.  The companies impacted are: Apex Bus, I-95 Coach and New Century Travel.  New Century is based in Philadelphia; the other companies are headquartered here in New York.

Among the safety shortcoming cited by the government: drivers who did not possess a valid commercial license and buses that were not regularly inspected or repaired.
