Riding the Bus


Everett Transit allows animals on the bus. Dogs must be on a leash and have a muzzle that covers the mouth and is secured behind the head while on the bus. Please be courteous and do not allow your animals to disturb other customers. Pets must be kept on your lap or on the floor of the bus; animals may not occupy a customer seat.

Owners must control their animals at all times and clean up after them. Except for dogs, all animals must be in an approved carrier. Animals not in an approved carrier will not be allowed on the bus.

Service or guide animals are allowed on all Everett Transit buses. Under the American's with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals must be harnessed, leashed or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal's work or the individual's disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal or other effective controls.

Strollers & Shopping Carts

To ensure the safety of our customers, strollers and shopping carts should be no more than 22" wide x 24" deep and be free from items hung on the outside.

As required by the ADA, the driver will request you relocate to accommodate a customer with a disability. It may be necessary for you to fold your stroller or grocery cart to keep the aisle clear.

Note: Bus operators may refuse to transport animals or large carry-on items if safety is a concern.
