Passenger pets are allowed on board at no charge. All pets must be crated in a secure and clean cage designed and intended for the carrying of animals which is small enough to fit on the owner's lap.

Passengers must hold onto the cage at all times and are responsible for the safety of their pet. (If there is room on the bus, cages may be placed beside you on the floor, but the cage should not block the aisle or restrict passenger movement.)

The pet must remain inside the cage at all times.
