Registered assistance animals with appropriate qualification and registration are allowed to travel on buses and light rail vehicles within the Transport Canberra network. They are required to be on a lead at all times, and wear an identifiable coat where applicable. Pets are permitted to travel on light rail vehicles provided they are contained in a secure pet carrier and can be transported without disrupting the safety or comfort of other passengers.
