Fung Wah Bus plans Providence-NY service
By Paul S. Makishima, Globe staff

Fung Wah Bus will start nonstop service from Providence to New York starting June 15.

Plans call for daily departures from Rhode Island at 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., with two returns from New York at 4:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. Tickets are priced at $40 each way.

The discounter faces competition on this route from Greyhound and Peter Pan, both of which schedule multiple departures.
Greyhound charges $14-$34 one way, depending on how far in advance you buy tickets, and its buses make stops in between. Peter Pan offers nonstops at $37 or $45, with the lower price being an online fare. Company officials say the firm also has a late-night rate of $32 and student discounts.
