Pets May Bring Humans on Buses From Tomorrow

Pets will be allowed on public buses alongside their humans in the Reykjavík capital area starting tomorrow, RÚV reports. The Ministry for the Environment approved a pilot project allowing dogs, cats, and other pets to travel on buses for a period of one year.

Certain conditions will apply to travelling groups that include furry friends. Pet owners with multiple small dogs will have to choose their favourite, as travelling with more than one dog in your lap will not be allowed.

Pets will remain banned on buses Mondays to Fridays between 7 and 9 in the morning and 3 and 6 in the afternoon—meaning career dogs will have to continue using other methods of transportation to get to work.

Finally, while animals of all ages can travel on buses, the human accompanying them must be at least 18 years of age.
