New tobacco laws
From 1 September 2016, smoking is banned at public transport waiting areas and within a five meter buffer zone beyond the waiting area.
A person is considered to be within the five metre buffer zone if they are in a queue that starts at the public transport waiting point. It is an offence to smoke anywhere in a bus queue, even if the queue extends beyond five metres from the bus stop sign.
You can call 13QGOV (13 74 68) to report a possible breach of the law.
