Hoppin' the Bus with Bubble
Hello and Welcome! In Seattle and the King County area, well-behaved, leashed dogs can ride on the King Country Metro system. Large, leashed pups pay the same fare as their owners and must sit on the floor (they can’t take up a seat); transfers will be issued for large dogs. Smaller dogs that can sit on the owner's lap and service dogs are free.
Please note that the Seattle Area has several different transit companies including King County Metro, Sound Transit (includes the Light Rail), Community Transit, and the Monorail. They all have differing policies when it comes to pets. If your dog is bigger and cannot travel easily in a carrier you may want to double check policies before traveling.
Seattle is home to numerous tour bus companies, each of which have differing pet policies. Seattle Pup encourages dog owners to contact the companies prior to boarding with their pup.
King County Metro (Seattle Area transit) *All leashed dogs welcome, however bus drivers may refuse entry if they already have a dog on board.
Sound Transit *Pet policy states only small dogs that are in carriers can be transported, this includes the Light Rail (the train that goes to SeaTac Airport)
Community Transit * Non-service dogs are not allowed to ride on Community Transit’s commuter buses (routes numbered in the 400s and 800s). Pet policy states that dogs must be on a leash on local buses and also must wear a muzzle.
