FMCSA orders Fung Wah to cease all operations

Posted on March 29, 2013

An investigation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) found Fung Wah Bus Transportation Inc., of Boston, to be an imminent hazard to public safety and ordered to cease all passenger operations.

The action rescinds FMCSA’s March 1 out-of-service order issued to the company that was based upon its failure to cooperate with FMCSA investigators and replaces it with an updated order based on additional information.

Since the March 1 order, FMCSA safety investigators have found evidence of significant safety problems and dangerous conditions on its buses. The company failed to inspect, repair and maintain its vehicles, falsified inspection records, failed to ensure its drivers were qualified and complied with hours-of-service regulations, and failed to meet drug and alcohol testing requirements.

Individually and cumulatively, these violations and conditions of operations substantially increase the likelihood of serious injury or death to Fung Wah drivers, passengers and the traveling public.
