When you get a dog, it truly becomes your best friend. You just want to be with it all the time, so it’s fair that you’d want to take your dog with you wherever possible.
For those with a car, transporting your pooch might not be too much hassle. However, for those without, it’s a whole other story – and it comes with a price tag.
Dogs are allowed on trains in Melbourne; small dogs in a suitable container or big dogs on leash with a muzzle.
If you don’t follow the rules, you could be out of pocket by a whopping $248!
Trams and buses will also allow smaller dogs, as long as they are in a suitable animal container.
Many people haven’t followed the rules, but only five fines were handed out in the 2018/2019 financial year.
Of course, all assistance animals can travel in whatever public transport is necessary which includes cabs.
