Penn. Bus Operation Ordered To Shut Down

Posted on January 4, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has ordered Double Happyness Travel Inc., of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., to immediately cease all intrastate and interstate passenger service, declaring the carrier an “imminent hazard” to public safety.

This order follows an extensive review of the company’s operations, which found multiple hours-of-service, vehicle maintenance, and controlled substance and alcohol testing violations.

Double Happyness Travel was immediately shut down after FMCSA safety investigators found the company failed to comply with hours-of-service, records of duty and driver qualification requirements. Double Happyness Travel provided service between New York City and Albany, N.Y.; Baltimore; and Wilmington, Del.
