How to Ride Metro
Animals on the bus
Drivers are required to permit any customer with a service animal to ride King County Metro buses. This includes animals-in-training accompanied by a trainer or person with a disability.
Service animals for persons with disabilities ride for free. No permit is required, but the driver may ask if your animal is a service animal to determine if a fare is appropriate.
Service animals must remain on the floor without blocking the aisle or on their owner's lap. If this is not an option, the service animal may occupy a seat provided one is available.
If the service animal's behavior threatens the safety of the driver or other passengers the customer and their service animal may be asked to leave the bus.
Dogs may ride at the discretion of the operator under these guidelines:
Animals other than dogs are not allowed on the coach unless they are in a container or carrier. Fare is not required.
