Under the City of Brampton Transit By-law, no person shall smoke or hold a lighted tobacco product, including a cigar, cigarette or pipe at any of Brampton Transit’s Terminals. This includes all outdoor areas within 9m of an entrance door, or any other outdoor space on the property including platforms. This would therefore include all air intakes and operable windows, as well as doorways, of transit terminals.

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.
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.
