Tobacco And Vaping To Be Banned At Everett Station

August 18, 2015

Everett, Everett Government

No smoking anywhere

No smoking or vaping beginning Sept. 1st at Everett Station.

Received word from Everett Transit today that all forms of smoking (both tobacco and otherwise) will be banned at the Everett Station starting September 1st. Here’s the explanation…

In a continued effort to provide customers and visitors of the Everett Station with a pleasant experience, Everett Transit is installing new signs to promote the Station as a smoke-free campus.

The campus includes the Everett Station building and its adjacent sidewalks, all bus bays and transit shelters, as well as the landscaped areas within the property. The no-smoking policy includes e-cigarettes and vaporizers.

There will be an added emphasis on enforcement in early September to remind station guests that smoking on campus is not permitted. Previously designated smoking areas will be repurposed this fall and will no longer be available.

Everett Station, located at 3201 Smith Ave, serves as a transportation hub, as well as a career development center, and it is open to the public 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, including holidays. Local and regional transit service to the Station includes Everett Transit, Community Transit, Skagit Transit and Sound Transit.

    So, come up with a safe form of tobacco, and they make that no one can use it. That’s wrong!

    I’m an occasional smoker, and I’m all four this!! I think it’s rude to smoke in public. Yay Everett Station, now I don’t have to exit the train and smell that nasty smell.

  3. Your Lungs Says:

    Smoking should be banned in public. Let people smoke in their homes, but no non-smoker should have to breathe that filth.
