How cute is this?

I realize that not everyone is a fan of allowing our four-legged (or, in some cases, winged) friends on buses, but I couldn’t resist this picture, sent to my by Jessie, a newly minted Seattle bus chick who sometimes rolls with her dog, Zeus.

I’m on the fence about Metro’s pro-pet stance. It seems like a potential health hazard, and I imagine that it could seriously aggravate passengers with allergies (or fears). On the other hand, I see it as an added incentive for pet owners who are considering going car free, and as a necessity for those who cannot afford cars.

I’m curious to know what you guys think about this, what with Seattle being such a dog-lovin’ town (they ain’t just on buses, folks) and all. Also, if you happen to know the pet policies of transit agencies in other parts of the country, please do share.
