Customers with disabilities accompanied by a service animal are welcome on Jefferson Lines. The service animal is the responsibility of its owner and must be under the control of its owner at all times (i.e., leash, harness or carrier). The service animal must ride in the bus within the customer’s space. Service animals may not travel in the aisle or occupy a seat, but the service animal may sit on the customers lap. Jefferson Lines pet policy reserves the right to refuse passage to any animal that poses a direct threat to the health and safety of other customers, Jefferson Lines personnel or contractors. Drivers are permitted to ask if the animal is required because of a disability and what type of work or task the animal has been trained to perform before admitting the customer for bus travel with service animals. Comfort or companionship does not qualify as the work or task of a service animal.
