Autobuses Rio Verde, of Irving,
Texas, was ordered to cease
operations by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) after
determining that the company was affiliated with Green River Bus LLC, which was
ordered to cease operations in April 2008.
An investigation of Autobuses Rio Verde by FMCSA revealed that the owners
and operators were in violation of the April 2008 order by conducting
interstate transportation as a substantial continuation of Green River Buses
LCC's former operation.
The investigation revealed that the two companies shared identification of
company officials and functions, physical addresses, vehicle ownership, employee
identification and operational similarities.
