At lunch yesterday, we were discussing the fate of that great and mysterious (and frequently awful) modern convenience, The Chinatown Bus. And how, after New Century Travel, Inc. was shut down back in May, it seemed like only a matter of time before some other Chinatown bus would prop up, only to offer the same weird service and follow the same cycle of illegality; James suggested some well-known economic principle which states that, if something can make money in this society, it will exist, regardless of its relationship with the law.
Not even an hour later, we spotted something called the Yo Bus barreling down Race Street. Painted red with large characters screaming “YO BUS!” alongside various bold Asian characters and destinations, it occurred to us that this can only be the new iteration of the Chinatown Bus. But our searches come up with nothing which is, in the scope of the Chinatown Bus system, not exactly surprising. So let us throw it to you: Do you know about Yo Bus? Tell us.
