There is no charge for transporting a pet. We follow the bus association's recommendation for the transport of animals, according to which ordinary and harmless pets can be transported on the bus under the responsibility of an escort if there is space on the bus.
Buses may carry a police dog, a guide dog for the visually impaired, a helper dog for the disabled or a dog trained as an assistant dog.
Transporting pets on the bus is at the driver's discretion on a case-by-case basis. Pets may not be picked up if
- the bus is very full
- there are already other animals on the bus or
- other passengers oppose taking the animal into the car. An allergic passenger already on the bus has the primary right to choose a seat and, if necessary, even ask the driver to prevent the pet from getting on the bus. Passengers cannot prevent a guide or assistance dog from being picked up.
The owner of the animal is responsible for ensuring that the animal does not cause disturbance to other passengers. Pets are placed in such a way as to cause the least possible inconvenience to other passengers. Pets must not be placed on the seats or kept separate.
