City Council Delays Bus Party Ordinance Review

A proposal to ban party buses or make drivers get a chauffeur license will have to wait until next week.

The item was on the Lubbock City Council agenda Monday morning, but council decided to postpone the issue until November 18th. However, one company is already taking steps to alleviate the complaints. Monday morning, Ruby Tequila's Director of Marketing, Mark Prickett, spoke before city council and said the company is implementing the following new policies on its bus. Effective immediately, the Ruby Tequila bus will no longer enter neighborhoods, alcohol will not be allowed on the bus if someone under the age of 21 is on the bus, the driver must now ID all passengers on board, and buses will no longer be rented to someone under the age of 21.

"We think making these changes should eliminate problems that happened before with party buses and consider these in rewriting the ordinance," Prickett said.

The city council has postponed any ordinance changes until November 18th.
