Default Dogs on Busses?

I was looking at a writeup by a hotel and it said that you can take your dogs on busses in Seattle. Is that true? If so, wow, gotta get there. Thanks for any info.

People out here bring theior dogs EVERYWHERE...which sucks for those of us with allergies. I mean do they really need to come to the grocery store with their owners?

If I'm not mistaken, dogs are allowed on Metro buses, but a fare must be paid for them unless they are lap dogs. I believe dogs may not ride on Sound Transit buses, or on Sounder Trains, or on the light rail.

Don't worry. Some of the two legged passengers are far smellier than the dogs who ride.

Since we don't have a car we ride the bus. Dogs on the bus, yes plenty of dogs on the bus all the time. I often find they're better behaved than a lot of people who ride the bus.

I remember one time a fellow got on the bus with his Great Dane. He just folded up the dog and slid him under the seat like a suitcase. Obviously they'd had a lot of practice.

The only time dogs on the bus peeve me is when they're soaking wet and dripping water everywhere and smell like...... wet dog.

Wow that is great that dogs are allowed! I work in a grocery store and some people have some strong odors...man..ug! I don't know if they have health issues or just lack of hygene or what but clearly a dog would be a sweet change Many people are much harder to get along with than a dog!!!

Even though dogs do pay a fare (obviously, their owner pays the fare), with the exception of lap dogs, NO dog is to occupy a seat.

So if you observe a dog sitting on or otherwise occupying a seat, it is against Metro's rules. Dogs must either be on the owner's lap or on the floor.

I thought that was illegal, except for service dogs. Personally I've never seen a non-service dog in the grocery stores we go to. I have seen the signs on the door at places like Safeway saying that only service dogs are allowed...
