Passengers can smoke legally at most bus stops across the network as they are less than 50 per cent enclosed. TfL places 'no smoking' signs at many new and refurbished stops under its byelaw provisions. These notices seek to persuade smokers to desist while waiting to board vehicles in the interests of the public.
