Dogs on buses.

Post by Shuggiegreen on Mon Apr 27, 2015 3:13 pm

We have two dogs which we have never taken in our motorhome but this season circumstances mean we will be taking them with us.I have 2 questions are dogs allowed on buses ? if they are do you pay for them ? We like to stay at sites on bus routes and leave the van on site and use the bus.

My Hubby has taken two dogs on a bus and a train, didn`t have to pay for them, one a Bearded Collie the other a Yorkie, as the beardie was nervous the bus driver , it was a stop over terminus, started the bus when Alfie was on the platform to see how he was, he was ok, bus driver explained he had dogs. Thought that was very good of him.

We have two dogs, (Cocker Spaniels) and have taken them on buses into Oxford, Cambridge and Lincoln.

On the park and ride bus into Oxford the dogs travelled for free, and as far as I can remember they also travelled for free into Cambridge from Cherry Hinton caravan club site.

The bus company website for the Lincoln bus company stated that the carriage of dogs was up to the driver's discretion, and there was no problem, although there was a small charge, I think it was 50p each dog each way.

Each time we just asked the driver before we got on.

Tom.

A maximum of two dogs can travel on Oxford buses, free of charge. On a double decker that is one per deck and 2 in total on single deckers. They must not sit on the seats but cab sit on their owners lap. They travel at the driver's discretion and any disturbance might result in you and them being asked to get off the bus. They cannot travel on any of the coaches ( eg the regular 10 minutely ones to London for example) however.

I asked a bus driving friend this, and he says it's entirely up to the bus drivers discretion with the company he works for (Trent), but he personally is totally anti-dog, so refuses all dogs, with the exception of assistance dogs.

Hi there,

I suggest that you take the dogs to France.

Over there I have see dogs in restaurants, cafes, bars and shops with no-one even batting an eyelid.

If a bus driver in the UK can refuse to take a fare on the basis that he doesn't like dogs then the patients are truly running the asylum.

Best regards,
