Policy Analysis

This bylaw provides an example of a transit authority bylaw. It could be strengthened by prohibiting smoking at all transit stops, not just at the terminals.

Enforcement

The City of Brampton Corporate Security staff enforce the Transit By-law by issuing two warnings. Upon the third offence the individual is banned via the Trespass to Property Act. Once banned, individuals who do not comply can face a Trespassing Charge laid by Peel Regional Police Service.
