LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Lincoln City Council has voted to ban smoking at city bus stops and bus shelters.

The Lincoln Journal Star says (https://bit.ly/1nKTMna0 ) the council took the action Monday night as it also approved route changes and endorsed a consultant’s report on StarTran services.

The resolution bans smoking within 15 feet of any bus stop or shelter and will have to be enforced by bus drivers for now. Still to be determined are possible punishments that could include fines for offenders.
