EL METRO’S SERVICE ANIMAL INFORMATION
Service animals are welcome on El Metro. 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 onboard. Please follow these guidelines:
- Your animal must be on a leash or in a container and must remain under your control at all times.
- The animal must remain at your feet or on your lap. The animal may not sit on a vehicle seat.
- The animal must not be aggressive toward people or other animals.
- You are responsible for any damage or soiling caused by the animal.
NOTE: Non-service animals are allowed on El Metro vehicles when carried in an appropriate, securely latched cage or container.
CDC COVID – 19 ANIMALS
Pets with confirmed infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 should be restricted to isolation in the home until a veterinarian or public health official has determined that they can be around other pets and people.
Service animals may need to be around other people and animals while working. When possible, both the handler and the animal should stay at least 6 feet away from others.
Do no put masks on service animals. Covering an animal’s face could harm them.
If a service animal is sick, call a veterinarian, and do not go out in public with the animal.
