Default Chinatown Buses from NYC?

Trying to get some info on Chinatown buses leaving from NYC but it's ridiculous how little information is available by using Google. Does anyone know a website or phone number for the Casino buses (and/or schedules) that leave from Chinatown, NYC? Would like to take a break from AC...

Thanks to all!

If you want to come to Connecticut, try looking up Foxwoods bus schedule.

Around Canal and Bowery, across and next to Confucious Plaza.
There is one "booth" just around Division St. That goes to Trop in AC.
Foxwood and Mohegan sun you can also find buses around there.
few PA casinos, Parx, Sands, Mt. Airy all have buses there...
Be prepared with loud phone calls, Chit Chat
You can always find buses leaving from Penn Station
Good cards.

If you read Chinese, you can buy a copy of "World Journal" or any daily newspaper in Chinatown. There are ads on numerous buses to every possible casino run by tour operators.

Hell, even you don't read Chinese, you will have no problem to figure out these are advertisements for casinos buses with time schedule and bus departing sites (most in English).

Fung Wah is the name of one of the bigger companies. I saw one of their buses in flames on the way to Foxwoods one night. It was a classic "Chinese fire drill."

Spend a few dollars more and go with Greyhound or one of the companies with a proven track record.

If you don't mind the crowd, it's actually not a bad way to travel. With relative good promotions. You can buy and sell bus coupons without too much problems. Trips are between 10 to 15 bucks with another 2 bucks as mandatory tips.... they are also more frequent than greyhound.... in the evenings usually every hour or so til 12or later...

The Fung Wah only goes between Boston and NY (well, whenever it makes it in one piece) it doesn't stop at the casinos.

I'd think it would be a great idea to start a regular commuter bus service from Parx to NYC. It has a huge parking lot that is never full on weekdays. Parx would benefit because some commuters would go to the casino after work.
