Pets Aboard Trailways
FYI: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a disability as with respect to an individual:
(A) A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such individual;
(B) A record of such an impairment;
(C) Being regarded as having such impairment.
ADA also defines a Service Animal as: Any animal individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Tasks typically performed by service animals include guiding people with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to the presence of intruders or sounds, providing minimal protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, or retrieving dropped items.
Official service pets accompanying passengers are allowed aboard any Trailways bus, at no additional cost.
General or leisure pet travel aboard a Trailways bus, however, is at the discretion of each bus company operating the scheduled route service.
If pet transport is allowed by a Trailways bus company, the only animals which may be brought aboard the bus is either a cat or dog, which weighs less than 25 lbs, and must be securely contained in an official "Live" pet transport carrier.
If you are considering travel aboard a Trailways bus, and wish to transport a pet, you must contact the bus company operating the scheduled bus service in advance of arriving at the departure location for bus-boarding.
