Travelling with a Pet
South West Coach Lines strictly refuse the transportation of any live stock or domestic animals on board and or stowed in our luggage compartment. Transportation in this instance is classified as a breach of the “Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines” and the “RSPCA Policy for the Transportation of Animals”. Service animals such as seeing eye dogs are permitted to travel on board with passengers who have certified approval.
Persons requiring assisted travel with a Companion Dog are permitted to travel with the appropriate certification on South West Coach Lines services. Companion dogs will require a valid identification card issued by a training organisation prescribed under the Dog Regulations 2013. Companion Dogs must have a suitably marked identifying dog coat or harness. More information about Companion Dogs can be found by contacting Seeing Eye Dogs Australia, Visibility or Assistance Dogs Australia.
