Feds Cracking Down on Local Bus Line in Hampton Roads
Pilotonline.com reported on June 25, 2011, the "Bus line shut by feds back on road with new name". Based on the pilots findings "at least eight discount bus companies run 13 daily routes from Virginia Beach and Norfolk to New York and Washington. Of those, only two appear under their advertised names in the online federal of safety records, meant to help passengers weed out unsafe bus companies."
State safety officials are given annual funding to oversee commercial motor coach safety. The annual funding is approximately $4 million. It's reported that in 2010, only eight inspections were conducted, in comparison to NC that reported 370 state inspections.
Sky Express was shut down in Hampton Roads earlier this year after the deadly wreck on Interestate 95 outside Richmond. The company is still operating in Hampton Raods under another name with "Black Marker" based on investigation by The Pilot. The company now operates as a Virginia Beach business under the name "Va. Beach Express Bus".
