In accordance with the U.S. Department of Transportation regulations, "service animal" means any guide dog, signal dog or other animal individually trained to work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability, including, but not limited to, guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders and sounds, pulling a wheelchair, or fetching dropped items.
Your service animal is welcome on LIFTS. No permit is required, but you may be asked to confirm that your animal is a service animal. You are responsible for the care and supervision of your animal while on board. A service animal should remain on the floor or in a customer's lap, but cannot be given its own seat. Uncontrolled service animals or service animals which threaten other customers cannot be accommodated.
An animal which solely provides emotional support, well-being, comfort or companionship is not a service animal. These types of animals, "companion animals," are considered pets are not allowed to be transported on LIFTS buses, unless they are in an approved pet carrier.
