    I definitely prefer unsafe buses be OFF the road!

    I've taken quite a few of these. Some scarier than others. I wonder what all these travelers will do for transport. There are a lot of people that take them. The irony is that the majority of people that take these buses aren't even Chinese even though the routes are via the east coast Chinatowns.

    Greyhound/Trailways and newer fancy ones (wifi) like MegaBus and BoltBus.

    I've always wondered about some of the outfits that run the free buses to casinos, such as Philadelphia to Atlantic City, some targeted at seniors.

    i would think those would be ok. the casino doesn't want them dying from anything other than natural causes on their way in. they're going to AC to spend their pension and get comped to the early bird specials

    Several people I know have been impacted by the shut down of the Chinese buses within the D.C. - NYC corridor

    The words "imminent hazard" and "year-long investigation" in the same sentence are interesting ...
