Animals which have been specially trained to perform tasks for an individual with a disability, also known as service animals, are permitted onboard all ECU Transit vehicles. Passengers with service animals which post a threat to the health and safety of others or which are not under the owner's control will be asked to remove the animal from the vehicle.
For safety reasons, all common wheelchairs and other power-driven mobility devices, such as power chairs and scooters, must be secured while being transported. Power-driven mobility devices should be turned off; passengers with such devices are not permitted to stand on them while being transported.
Any passenger who does not permit the vehicle operator to secure their wheelchair or other power-driven mobility device may be refused service. Power-driven mobility devices which are believed to present substantial risk of serious harm may also be refused. Additionally, wheelchairs or other power-driven mobility devices may be refused service on all buses or a series of buses if they are found to exceed the maximum acceptable footprint of 30 inches wide by 48 inches long.
