Woman Left Stunned After Being Told Her Dog Needed A Bus Ticket
In fact, I'd go as far as saying that I would probably pay someone to get on the bus with their pet pooch. They certainly wouldn't need to spend their own hard-earned cash, that's a given.
Heidi has taken her French Bulldog, Chanel, on the bus before and never been asked to pay 90p for her ticket. She told "I was shocked as I never even new that there was even such thing as a dog ticket was definitely news to me."
She been on the bus before and never paid so yes I was really shocked that when the driver told me to pay for the dog. "I just laughed at him and said that would be funny and carried on walking on the bus until he turned around and said he is serious.
"I said 'ok then, show me the ticket' and when I seen it I laughed so much I thought to myself surely my dog should have a seat for comfort as she has paid and she owned it as well bless her." "She [Chanel] normally stands up on floor and I try to get her to sit but she does not like sitting down she is so used to blankets, bedding, and comfort."
A spokesperson for Stagecoach in South Wales said: "A dog charge has been in place for many years and contributes to the cost of cleaning the interiors of our buses. There has been no change to our policy. There is no charge for guide dogs."
