Council members voted unanimously on the measure, which prohibits smoking within 25 feet of boarding platforms at downtown Raleigh's Moore Square Station as well as other bus stops where two or more buses stop.
No-smoking signs will be posted at all affected bus stops, including those at Triangle Town Center, Crabtree Valley Mall and the south Raleigh bus transfer area at Wilmington Street and Pecan Road.
The ban will take effect upon the City Council's approval of an ordinance concerning smoking at bus stops.
It's not clear when that will happen.
