Bus Cellphone Ban to Be Lifted
The current ban on using cellphones in some parts of Stockholm’s buses and subway trains is going to be short-lived.
Stockholm Transport introduced the mobile phone-free zones at the end of August, to reduce the irritation of intruding conversations by fellow passengers.
Now the new center-right majority in the Stockholm country council says the ban will be removed as soon as they take over on November 1st. A Liberal Party councillor says the ban seemed rather silly.
Local public transportation is run by the counties here in Sweden.
