I think that small dogs are allowed on Metro Transit buses in the HRM. They have it very negatively worded on their website - but none-the-less, what they're saying is that dogs ARE allowed. Here is what it says:
"With the exception of Seeing-Eye Dogs and Other Trained Working Dogs, animals are not allowed on Metro Transit vehicles, unless properly restrained in a closed cage or otherwise restrained so the animal will not cause a disturbance or damage to the vehicle."
Now what that says to ME is this - Dogs ARE allowed on Metro Transit buses as long as they are in a closed cage or otherwise restrained so that they will not cause a disturbance or damage to the vehicle.... so what does that mean?
Small dogs CAN go on Metro Transit - just put them in a poochi bag or a Sherpa bag, or whatever bag you like to put them in - but they CAN go on the bus! Isn't that fabulous? And if you get any flack - just take the section of the website that says the above about animals - you'll find it here - http://www.halifax.ca/metrotransit/policies.html
Man, if you put your vari-kennel on wheels - you can go just about anywhere I figure...
