Animals on VTA Buses and Light Rail

 Animal Carrier  Animal Carrier  Animal Carrier


Customers may transport small pets on VTA buses and light rail in a completely enclosed cage or carrying case that is small enough to fit on the customer’s lap.  The animal must not endanger or annoy other customers.

Service animals (and animals in training) are permitted to ride onboard VTA buses and light rail. Service animals are specially trained animals that assist persons with disabilities. Service animals must be within the care, custody and control of their owners. This means that the animal is properly restrained by leash, harness or carrier and is not roaming the coach and barking or growling.
