State inspectors say they have found serious safety problems with buses used by a popular discount bus service operating between Boston and New York City.
 
    Department of Public Utilities Chairwoman Ann Berwick said inspectors looked at nine buses used by Fung Wah Bus and found serious problems in eight, including cracks to the frames.
 
    Berwick said the state negotiated an agreement with the company to take all 21 of their older buses off the road.
 
    Six of the company’s buses are still operating.
 
    Berwick said the state has also sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Transportation asking them to declare an imminent hazard which would effectively shut down the company until it could operate to the satisfaction of federal inspectors.
