Somewhere there's a love in flames, like a Chinatown bus [18 Aug 2005|10:11pm]

Quackenbush, who uses the bus to commute between work locations, said this will not deter him from taking the bus again. In fact, it will have just the opposite effect, he said.

''What are the odds of this happening again?" he said. ''Now I'm safe."

Hey Quackenbush, you should be reading my blog. It's not been 5 months since the last incident.

It happened again on Tuesday.

Shockingly, given the fares they charge, they are not responding to requests from people regarding insurance and medical issues.

When the bus finally arrived at Fung Wah offices on Canal Street in Manhattan late Tuesday, passengers said, the lights in the tiny office were turned off and women working the ticket counter told them to come back the next day.

In fairness, apparently the March 18 bus was not Fung Wah, but Travel Pack, which also goes from Chinatown to Chinatown.

Once they arrived at Fung Wah's New York location, ''we went up and knocked on the door, and there were clearly people in there, and they just shook their heads no," Holliday said.

Can you imagine? You just had to evacuate a burning bus, and the employees of the company responsible "just shook their heads no"? Haunted by the notion...
