The rise and fall of "Popular Bus Companies seem fateful and fatally phenomenal: Who bewitches progressive Bus companies?

Not long ago it was Link Bus Co. Before that, it was the famous Gaaga Bus Co.' that from one accident and/or fire to another finally went gaaga and I suppose now closed.

Before Gaaga, was Horizon. Before Horizon was Jaguar, etc.

In other words, it now seems the Global Bus Co. has caught the unexplained grizzly accident virus. Hence within a month, Global buses have been involved in one too many deadly road accidents.
