BOSTON — Fung Wah, the cut-rate bus company that provided service between Boston and New York and had its federal license revoked in March 2013 for safety violations, has been granted permission to resume operations, The Boston Globe reported.

In a statement, the company said it had reached an agreement with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which regulates interstate bus travel, in November. Barry Lewis, a consultant to Fung Wah who is handling many of its new operations, said the company would need “at least two weeks” to resume operations, the report said.

The shutdown of Fung Wah was part of a nationwide crackdown by the FMCSA, which pulled 110 companies off the road for safety violations last year, including fellow Boston-to-New York Chinatown carrier Lucky Star. Lucky Star was reinstated last fall after spending almost $1 million to upgrade its operations, according to the Globe.
