Lucky Star buses will start rolling out of South Station on Friday, five months after the Boston company was shut down by the federal government for safety violations. The first bus will depart for New York at 6:30 a.m. Friday, followed by 13 more trips throughout the day. The carrier will make up to 16 trips a day at first. Tickets are $25 each way on weekdays and $30 on the weekends. Reservations can be made on the carrier’s website, luckystarbus.com, although the function was not working as of Thursday afternoon. Lucky Star lost its license in June for not properly maintaining its buses and failing to monitor drivers’ hours and drug and alcohol tests. Since then, the company has spent almost $1 million in upgrades and was reauthorized to operate last week.
