The Ban on Smoking in Bus Shelters Has Been Put Into Law in Philadelphia

It’s official, bus shelters throughout Philadelphia are now smoke-free. City officials plan to put signs up at all shelters around the city to let people know. Signs are already up along Market Street east of City Hall.


Gary Barbera, Gary Barbera’s on the Blvd, and his Barbera Cares program, recently partnered with State Representative Jared Solomon (D-PA) to keep the Boulevard safe. Barbera’s “Don’t Text and Drive. Slow Down Phone Down” campaign message is placed on bus shelters around the city mainly concentrating on the Roosevelt Boulevard to keep it safe.


Barbera says the new smoking ban won’t affect the message of don’t text and drive. Barbera recently partnered with State Rep. Jared Solomon and Northeast Towers Chick-fil-A to keep our Boulevard safe.


“Don’t Text and Drive” public service awareness campaign launched on local media to begin the transformation of Roosevelt Boulevard. For residents, visitors, employees, and commuters, including those who walk, wheel, transit, bike, and drive Roosevelt Boulevard (RT. 1 / Philadelphia PA) a series of improvements to create a more inviting corridor that is safe, accessible, and reliable is long overdue according to State Representative Jared Solomon (D-PA).
