Can I bring my pet or service animal on VTA bus and light rail?

Customers may bring small pets on buses and light rail only 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.

Comfort animals are not considered service animals and are therefore treated as pets when riding.

Service animals (and service animals in training) are permitted to ride on 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.
