Following the smoking legislation that came into force in 2006, it is an offence to smoke in any bus shelter whose walls have openings of less than 50% of the wall space. This means that all “enclosed shelters” will be covered by this legislation but that most “cantilever” (front wall with roof but less than ½ sides) shelters will be exempt. If you would like to report unlawful smoking within a Fife Council bus shelter, please phone 03451 550022.
