The Trump Administration’s ‘no-go zones’ rule could be the end of the road for public transit in the U.S.

The Trump Administration’s ‘no-go zones’ rule could be the end of the road for public transit in the U.S.

The Trump administration has proposed a rule to ban private transportation companies from using the word “no-stop” on their signs.

The new rule, proposed by the Transportation Department’s Office of Policy, Policy & Management (OPM), would make it illegal to use the word while using transit service.

Under the rule, “no stop” would only be used to indicate a stop, not a stop and go.

In addition, signs could not be placed at bus stops, and a rider’s location could not indicate a specific location.

The rule is not expected to be enforced.

It comes as Trump and his administration are working to dismantle key elements of Obama-era regulations.

It also comes as public transit has become a top issue as cities and states try to cope with rising congestion and increasing costs.

In 2018, a group of local officials in Philadelphia sued the Trump administration to stop the implementation of a rule aimed at encouraging ridership by putting more cars on the road.
