Taking a trip on a bus or streetcar in Seattle with your pooch is super easy as lap dogs ride free and large, leashed pups are welcome at your feet for a fee! Did you know that Washington State's ferry system is the largest in the nation? With boats traveling to several outlying islands (my favorites are the San Juans), this is a great adventure to take with your pets. The boat rules are fairly straightforward:
- If the ferry has outside stairwells, pooches are allowed on the car deck and on the outdoor decks above the car deck.
- If the ferry has indoor stairwells, dogs are only allowed on the deck where they boarded the ferry. So, if you drive on board, pup must remain on the car deck and, if you walk onto the boat, your dog is welcome on the outside deck where you boarded, not the other decks.
- And, best yet, pooches ride free!
