RT is Smoke Free!
RT has implemented a new policy that expands the limited restrictions that banned smoking from covered areas of an RT bus shelter and light rail shelter to include the entire bus stop and light rail station.
Installation of “No Smoking” signage and enforcement of the policy is complete and enforcement of RT’s No Smoking policy has started.
As a reminder, RT has authority to prohibit smoking under Penal Code Section 640(b)(3) and to issue citations to individuals smoking in prohibited areas (an infraction punishable by a fine of $250).
RT’s No Smoking policy is a key strategy in reducing community exposure to second-hand smoke and tobacco-related health problems.
