Pet-friendly transportation

Help! I am traveling from Bellingham to Vancouver, BC this spring and will be taking my dog. I need to use public transportation-- does anyone have any suggestions? Amtrak, Greyhound and the other express bus don't allow dogs.

since your dealing with international transport your options are pretty ltd. The other bus company is Quickshuttle if thats the express bus you mention.

You may have to just rent a car as there aren't many other options. Did you read the following:

In Vancouver you won't find any public transport that will take a pet,unless its a sevice animal ie: seeing eye dog etc. You will probably need to rent a car.Getting a taxi from Bellingham to Van. will be too costly because the U.S. taxies can't pick up passengers in Van. to bring back to U.S. so they'd charge you more..Quickshuttle won't take a pet either unless they've changed their policy.

Oh, I don't know, I think travel is all about flexibility, compromise and choices. And, sometimes, "it is what it is".

If traveling with your pet is the most important, it would seem like renting a car to travel to Vancouver is your best (only) option. If you haven't seen these, there are several websites with good information on travel with pets, some of which have forums.
