Service Animals on Board


Service Animals are allowed on all PVTA vehicles; pets are not permitted.

In accordance with the U.S. Department of Transportation regulations, "service animal" means any guide dog, signal dog or other animal individually trained to work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability, including, but not limited to, guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders and sounds, pulling a wheelchair, or fetching dropped items.

Your service animal is welcome on PVTA. No permit is required, but you may be asked to confirm that your animal is a service animal. You are responsible for the care and supervision of your animal while on board.

An animal which solely provides emotional support, well-being, comfort or companionship is not a service animal. These types of animals, "companion animals," are considered pets are not allowed to be transported on PVTA buses.
