Panic! on the Fung Wah

New Yorkers and Bostonians are familiar with the Fung Wah, the Chinatown to Chinatown bus line that costs only $15 each way. Ah yes, well, convenience and affordability have their price...didn't a couple of Fung Wah busses catch on fire last year? And now, this:


A Fung Wah bus rolled over on I-290 yesterday. Here's the article. I'm glad no one died, because now I don't feel guilty about laughing when I heard what happened and saw the picture.

What!??!? I am taking the Fung Wah from NYC to Boston today?!? Uhm, should I rethink my option?? Nay, its probably safer now immediately after than an accident then it will ever be. Again, Eileen, is it sad that you are the main source for my news and useless information??

I'm sure it's fine- those buses make about 40 trips a day, and probably 99% of them are incident-free. Plus, it's only $15!
Are you really coming to Boston? Call me, biatch!

Shouldn't the post title be:

"Panic! on the Fung Wah"?
