As of today, some pets are now allowed on public transit in Ottawa. Small pets, including cats and small dogs, can ride on OC Transpo buses and the O-Train as long as they’re in a pet carrier. They must remain in their carriers at all times and the carriers cannot be placed on seats or in the aisles — they’re only allowed on their owners’ laps while seated.
Among the list of prohibited animals in the by-law: non-domesticated cats and dogs, all snakes larger than three metres, and all predatory or large birds.
