PALMA DE MALLORCA, SPAIN is well on its way to becoming a pet-friendly city as EMT has announced that it will extend the number of buses that animals can travel on with their owners.
Currently, EMT allows passengers to travel with pets on lines L1, A1, A2, L2, L3, L4, L20 and L35, where from February 1, lines L11, L14, L16, L24, L31, L32, L46 and L47 will also be authorised for animals.
Costing 30 cents per journey, EMT regulations state that dogs must be tied with a lead and wear a muzzle whilst on the bus. In the case of puppies, cats, rabbits and other pets, they must be kept inside a basket or carrier. Dog breeds that are classified as dangerous will however not be allowed to travel.
Palma City Council has praised the move from EMT and hopes that the measure will be implemented on all lines by the first quarter of 2022.
