Greyhound Looking to Corner Cheap Chinatown Bus Market
You may recall the early June fiasco when [several Chinatown bus services were shut down by the government](http://nypress.com/chinatown-bus-crackdown-travelers-still-waiting-for-a-ride/), which cited serious public safety hazards on those carriers. Now, Greyhound, cited by many Chinatown bus riders as overly pricy and un-flexible with regard to drop-off points, is looking to corner that market. Spokespeople for Greyhound clarified the company has not yet decided where to locate the bus stops, and must first go through the approval process with Community Board 3, reported DNA Info. The City has the right to designate such stops, and a bill currently pending would make it even easier for officials to track bus carrier business. Catching a bus out of the city is going to get a whole lot pricier for many riders. -Alissa Fleck
