Description of Services Provided

Personal Care Attendant

  • On request, Greyhound Canada will provide a personal care attendant with a travelling ticket to be used by this attendant accompanying a person with a disability on the scheduled route for no extra charge.
  • A person wishing to travel with a personal care attendant must provide a letter from a health care professional, or a disability travel card issued by a recognized organization representing consumers with disabilities which uses a health care professional in assessing that a person cannot travel independently.
  • The personal care attendant will assist the person with:
    • transactions at the ticket counter;
    • moving to and from the boarding area;
    • stowing and retrieving any baggage;

    • administering medication;
    • using the facilities of an on–board washroom or a washroom at a stop; and
    • assembling and disassembling a mobility aid at locations other than bus terminals.

Service animals

  • Greyhound Canada will accept one certified service animal per passenger with a disability for carriage without charge and will permit the animal, if properly harnessed, to accompany the passenger on the bus. The service animal will remain on the floor at the passenger's feet during travel.
  • Passengers will be required to produce written proof to the operator that the service animal has been trained and certified by a professional service animal institution.
