Lucky Star buses will roll out of South Station on Friday, five months after the Boston company was shut down by the federal government for safety violations.

The first bus will depart for New York City at 6:30 a.m., followed by 13 more trips that day.

Initially, the carrier will make up to 16 trips a day.

Reservations can be made at luckystarbus.com.

In June, Lucky Star lost its license for not properly maintaining buses and failing to monitor drivers’ hours and drug and alcohol tests.

Since then, it has spent almost $1 million on upgrades.

It was reauthorized to operate last week.

Fung Wah, a Boston carrier that was shut down in March, is still awaiting government approval to start operating again.
