8News Daily Poll: Should dogs and cats be allowed on city buses?

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Starting Friday, passengers can now bring dogs and cats on city buses in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The pilot program was enacted to help people who rely on the bus and their pets. It’s a rule change many passengers say is long overdue.

“People have actually been already doing it. I actually think it’s a great idea,” said Passenger Andres Arciniega.

The cats and dogs are welcome as long as dogs are leashed and cats are in carriers.

Previously only service animals were allowed on board. Pets can now ride during non-peak hours. ABQ Ride says it wasn’t a practical option during rush hour.

Do you think other cities should adopt similar legislation?
