The cheapest, most entertaining and impossibly fast way to get to NYC from Albany just got killed off by the Federal Government. From the blurb:
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has ordered Double Happyness Travel, Inc., of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., to immediately cease all intrastate and interstate passenger service declaring the carrier an â€œimminent hazardâ€ to public safety. This order follows an extensive review of the companyâ€™s operations, which found multiple hours-of-service, vehicle maintenance, and controlled substance and alcohol testing violations.
