No Booze on RFTA Buses

Glenwood Springs—It’s last call for drinkers on RFTA buses. Starting June 9th, alcohol consumption will be prohibited on all RFTA buses. The Roaring Fork Transportation Authority Board of Directors voted to ban booze. It’s an idea that has been tossed around by the board for a couple of years but things came to a head after four drivers were assaulted last year. The reluctance to ban open containers on buses stemmed from asking drivers, who are already preoccupied with staying between the lines, safety and schedules, to keep an eye out for passengers tipping back a few drinks. RFTA officials however are expecting passengers to be fully compliant and drivers will not be asked to enforce the rule.
