The US Department of Transportation Tuesday ordered the Fung Wah bus line to remove its remaining buses from service following a long history of safety problems. The low-cost bus service has been cited for over 150 maintenance violations in the past two years and has been involved in several accidents. Here are photos of some of the incidents that plagued the bus line in recent years.
