Service Animals & Pets
Service animals are welcome on HARTransit vehicles if you travel with a service animal.
Pets up to 20 pounds may be transported in carriers designed for that purpose. Drivers cannot help passengers carry pets.
HARTransit buses accommodate all wheelchairs, scooters or other mobility devices up to the maximum physical dimensions and constraints of the bus. All HARTransit vehicles have lifts and ramps. Drivers are trained to safely operate wheelchair lifts and secure mobility devices on the bus.
Scooter users are asked to transfer to a seat after boarding. Most scooters cannot be tied down as securely as a standard wheelchair and are not designed for use on a moving vehicle.
Other mobility devices such as walkers and canes are accommodated. Passengers that have trouble with steps may use the ramp. Respirators and portable oxygen are also permitted.
HARTransit will consider reasonable modifications to its services in order to assist riders with disabilities and to ensure that an individual’s disability does not preclude him/her from having access to all HARTransit’s services. Use this form to make a reasonable modification request, or call 203-744-4070 ext. 200.
