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

Tickets are $25 each way on weekdays and $30 on weekends.

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.
