The Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District announced Friday that standard bus-riding rules will apply during Halloween festivities.

Open containers of any kind will not be tolerated on any MTD bus. To ensure passenger and driver safety, security and law enforcement will be present at the Transit Center at 1020 Chapala St. and on select buses Oct. 30-31.
