FMCSA Issues Cease and Desist Order Against Double Happyness Bus Company Prohibiting
the Illegal Sale of Bus Tickets to Consumers
WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) today issued a cease and desist order against Double Happyness Travel, Inc. of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., after finding that the company was operating and selling tickets in violation of a previous agency order to shutdown. The cease and desist order is effective immediately.
On Dec 23, 2011, FMCSA ordered Double Happyness to immediately cease all intrastate and interstate passenger service declaring the carrier an "imminent hazard" to public safety. The imminent hazard order followed an extensive review of the company's operations, which found multiple hours-of-service, vehicle maintenance, and controlled substance and alcohol testing violations. If Double Happyness continues to operate illegally, the company will face additional enforcement action.
