5. Fung Wah took passengers from NYC to Boston and Boston to NYC for $15, and while, yes, there was always a chance your bus could catch fire, it wasn’t THAT bad.

9. There’s so much to miss about the Fung Wah, like the excitement of wondering whether your bus would show up on time or not.

11. You never knew if you’d stop at a rest stop. It was exciting! One time, I actually stopped at an Arby’s. What a day.

12. And if they did stop for food there was, of course, always the chance they’d leave you.

13. But in all seriousness, it’s hard not to love the imperfections of the Fung Wah.
