Lucky Star Bus Shut Down By Feds

The federal government today shut down Lucky Star Bus, putting a stop to the company’s service between Boston and New York’s Chinatown.  The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which oversees the interstate bus business, issued a press release that asserted, “(Lucky Star’s) vehicles and drivers pose an imminent hazard to public safety.”

More from the release:

Today’s action is part of FMCSA’s “Operation Quick Strike,” an intensified investigation of high-risk passenger carriers that began last April. Federal investigators found that Lucky Star’s fleet of 21 motor coaches did not meet minimum safety standards as the company failed to systematically and properly inspect, repair or maintain the vehicles. Investigators also found that the owners of Lucky Star failed to monitor and ensure that its drivers complied with controlled substances and alcohol use and testing regulations. Drivers were employed before receiving negative pre-employment drug and alcohol test results as required by federal law. Drivers were not required by the company to turn in hours-of-service records or other required documentation such as driving itineraries and fuel receipts.

In February, the feds shut down the Fung Wah bus company. Lucky Star operates from 59 Chrystie St. in Chinatown.
