No, seriously Fung Wah. Cut it out. You’re making Carnival look safe and reliable.
Excerpt from Transportation Nation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ordered Fung Wah bus to halt operations between Boston and New York in late February after Massachusetts inspectors found cracks in the frames of many of the company’s buses. Within days that order was escalated to a total shut down of the company.
… Today’s action from the U.S. DOT rescinds the previous shut down order and replaces it with another one that is more permanent. The original order was because the company would not cooperate with the investigations into poorly maintained fleet.
