The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) ordered Fung Wah Bus Transportation Inc. to immediately provide its entire fleet of 28 motorcoaches for thorough and detailed safety inspections by qualified inspectors.

Going forward, FMCSA will continue to work closely with its state law enforcement partners in Massachusetts and New York to ensure the safety of the traveling public.

FMCSA's safety investigators are continuing their examination of Fung Wah's operations, including examining the safety records of its vehicles, drivers and other company safety performance requirements prescribed by federal regulations, and may consider additional actions against the company if warranted.
