Metro Transit

Do some sightseeing on the city bus—take public transport! Seattle’s Metro buses (the yellow and green ones) are canine-friendly. Service animals for persons with disabilities ride without charge, as do small dogs that will fit in their owners’ laps. Large dogs pay the same fare as their owners but may not occupy a seat; they should ride on the floor of the coach next to their owner. If you'll be transferring, be sure to get a transfer for your dog, too, so you don't have to pay your dog's fare twice. Dog admittance is subject to driver discretion, so if there are already other dogs riding, it is possible (though rare) that you will be refused service. Note that Sound Transit buses (the blue and white express freeway buses) only allow small dogs in carriers. transit.metrokc.gov
