As if the indignity of riding discount transportation to Boston wasn’t enough on its own, passengers of a Bolt Bus were forced to evacuate Monday evening as their chariot burst into flames.

Because they don't know.
This might provide some clues as to why no one in New York is riding the bus anymore.
