Parcels, Pets and Strollers

Pets on Board

Assistance animals that are certified are allowed on public transit at all times. You may be asked to produce your Guide Animal Certificate.

Only small fur-bearing or feathered pets contained in secure, clean, hand-held cages are permitted on the bus. Cages (hard or soft shell pet carriers) must be small enough to fit on the owner’s lap.

Passengers must hold onto their pet’s cage at all times. If there is room, the passenger may place and hold the cage beside them on the floor. The cage should not block the aisle or restrict other passengers.

Parcels

For safety reasons, please place and hold your luggage, bags, sports equipment and other belongings on your lap or on the floor where they will not obstruct the aisle or other customers. Hold your hockey sticks, snow boards, skis and poles (tips down) in front of you.

Do not bring combustible materials, such as wetcell batteries, propane tanks or gasoline containers on the bus.

Strollers

In order for a customer to use BC Transit, the stroller:

  • Should be collapsible
  • Cannot exceed 2 feet by 4 feet (24" by 48" or 60.96 cm by 121.92 cm)
  • Must be kept clear of the aisles (the width of the distance between the normal seats, not the width of the accessible area)
  • For safety reasons, strollers are not permitted to use the lifts or securement devices. Securements on the buses are for scooters and wheelchairs only.

 

When travelling on a bus with a baby stroller, please:

  • Position the stroller in an unoccupied wheelchair location with the brakes set
  • Hold onto the stroller at all times

When wheelchair positions are occupied or required by another customer, we ask for your consideration and cooperation by folding your stroller and moving to another seat. Please store your stroller in between the seats.

If the bus is not a low floor bus, the child must be removed from the stroller, the stroller collapsed and secured between the seats, and the child held onto at all times during the trip.
