Greyhound offers $1 Bus Fare for East Coast Travelers affected by Bus Company Closures

(Best Syndication News) - Greyhound along with Peter Pan Bus Lines and Adirondack Trailways are offering a $1 bus fare for customers that have purchased tickets with bus carriers that have been closed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

The $1 fares are only for those travelers who have purchased tickets from the 26 defunct bus lines before May 31, 2012 and they are valid for travel from June 1 through June 16, 2012. To get the discounted tickets, travelers must purchase them at Greyhound terminals. Peter Pan Bus Lines, and Adirondack Trailways may have similar requirements.

The bus lines were oversaw by three primary bus companies; Apex Bus, Inc., I-95 Coach, Inc., and New Century Travel, Inc. Apex Bus, Inc. also oversaw New Egg Bus, Inc., Asia Tours, Inc., Universe Bus, Inc., A One Bus, Inc., and All State Travel Bus, Inc. I-95 Coach, Inc. oversaw Go To Travel, Inc., Twins Jiang Corp., United Tours, Inc., Hu Mei Express, Inc., Tony Bus Lines, Inc., Coach 88, Inc., Tony Bus Express Line, Inc., and RA Transportation, Inc. The New Century Travel, Inc. bus line oversaw Antai Tours, Inc., Super Luxury Tours, Inc., Red Eagle Tours, Inc., 2003 Coach, Inc., Eagle Bus, Inc., Fujian Tourism Company Ltd., Sammy’s Tours, Inc., Black Leopard Travel, Inc., New Century Travel, Inc., and Wahoo Tour and Charter, Inc.

The FMCSA said that 13 of the bus lines were operating even after they were told to stop. The government agency felt that the 26 bus lines posed an imminent safety hazard for travelers. Combined, the bus lines transported around 1,800 passengers daily along the I-95 Freeway. The FMCSA began investigating these bus lines after deadly bus crashes occurred last spring.

Out of the FMCSA investigation, 116 drivers lost their license to drive the buses. There also were 169 buses taken off the road.
