Vancouver Dogs on Transit. sign now

Most of the major cities in the world allow dogs of all sizes on their transit system.

For a city like Vancouver that claims to want to remove cars from the road, having a dog in the city leave you with no option but to own a car.

Dog owners are forced to own a car in Vancouver as the parks are few and far between, making it challenging to get to parks without a car as dogs are not allowed on public transit either. Other cities in Canada & US have a dog friendly transit system and have been successful for years.

It would be nice if even making one bus route across the waters edge which is dog friendly which would stop at dog friendly beaches during summer (Kits dog beach, Spanish Banks, New Brighton Beach, CRAB Park). Every summer Spanish banks has a huge problem with parking. Creating a dog friendly bus would be a fun way for the dog community to get together!

Below are a few city's with their Transit dog policy's:

***Toronto, ON (TTC, 416-393-INFO, http://www.city.toronto.on.ca/ttc): Both small and large dogs are allowed during non-rush hour on the  subway, buses, and streetcars. Pets must be on a leash or in a carrier.

Larger dogs may be taken on the T during off-peak hours and must be leashed and controlled at all times. At no time should a pet compromise safety, get in a passenger's way or occupy a seat.
