What is the service animal & pet policy?

Service animals are allowed on all Columbia Area Transit vehicles. This includes animals-in-training accompanied by a trainer or person with disability. No permit is required, but the driver may ask if your animal is a service animal. Service animals must remain on the floor without blocking the aisle or on the owner’s lap.

Non-service animal dogs may ride at the discretion of the operator under these guidelines:

  • Drivers may refuse to transport a person and their dog if they already have another dog onboard.
  • Drivers may refuse to transport or request the removal of a dog if it is creating a hazard or disturbance.
  • All dogs that are not service animals must be on leash and muzzled. If you do not have access to a muzzle a reasonable modification can be requested at least a day in advance by calling (541) 386-4202.
  • Dogs are not allowed to occupy seats; they must remain either on the floor or sit on the owner’s lap.
