Fung Wah removes 21 buses from fleet

Cracks found in vehicles’ frames

The Fung Wah bus company, which has a history of crashes and other safety problems, has taken almost its entire fleet off the road following inspections by the state Department of Public Utilities that found cracks in the frames of many of the company’s aging buses.

The department is asking the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to shut down the low-cost carrier until it fixes safety problems found in the state inspections. The DPU does not have that authority.
