Transit welcomes service animals onto all our buses. U.S. Department of Transportation ADA regulations define a service animal as “any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability, including, but not limited to:
guiding individuals with impaired vision,
alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders or sounds,
providing minimal protection or rescue work,
pulling a wheelchair, or
fetching dropped items (49 CFR 37.3).
If you meet the outlined requirements, no license is required, but you may be asked to confirm that your animal is a service animal.
Customers are responsible for maintaining control over their animals and caring for them at all times when riding transit.
Customers are responsible for knowing the best way to board and position their animal on the transit vehicle.
Service animals may not block aisles or exits.
Every operator or employee who serves people with disabilities must be trained to provide non-discriminatory service in an appropriate and respectful way.
Operators must allow all service animals on board.
