Fung Wah and Ming An both suffered closure at the hands of the Feds, and now the field of Chinatown buses is opening up. The Community Board 3 transporatation subcommittee will hear applications for three new curbside stops, now filtering through the Department of Transportation.
- The General wishes to maintain its presence inside the Oriental Pearl Travel bus stop at 47 Chrystie Street. There will be five dropoffs and pickups each day with service to North Carolina. The stop would be approved for one bus at a time.
- Virginia Seagull Travel is seeking approval for the crowded space at 59 Canal Street. There will be four dropoffs and pickups each day with service to Virginia. Like the General, these guys are only approved for one bus at a time.
- Last, and perhaps least, is Victoria’s Tour Co, which wants to set up shop in front of 9 Chatham Square. There will be 11 dropoffs and pickups each day (!) with service to Atlantic City. The route has buses stopping in Flushing and Sunset Park.
