Right now, only assistance or guide dogs and small pets in carriers are allowed on buses, the Seabus and the SkyTrain.
But Margaret Halsey, a dog owner who lives in New Westminster, made a presentation to TransLink last week asking the board to reconsider.
"What I asked for is for them to change the policy to allow all dogs on leash, under control of the owner, wearing a muzzle—and there were lots of conditions: a coat, a jacket indicating it was approved, [and] only certain times of the day."
Halsey said she loves taking her eight-year-old whippet around town to different urban and regional parks, but that she'd rather take transit than drive.
"It's so much easier for me to just get on a SkyTrain with my dog if I want to go downtown to, say, walk Stanley Park or the seawall rather than one person, one car."
