If you are traveling on a Georgia Coach Lines bus making a 3-hour trip or longer that does not have any scheduled rest stops and is equipped with a lavatory that is inaccessible to your disability, you may request an unscheduled rest stop.
If you require special assistance of a personal nature you should consider traveling with a personal care attendant as our staff will not provide that level of assistance.
Our policies prohibit animals on board our buses; however, the exception is any ADA service animal.
A “service animal” is any guide dog, signal dog, or other animals individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including, but not limited to, guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders or sounds, providing minimal protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, or fetching dropped items. (28 C.F.R. § 36.104.)
Emotional support and comfort animals are not considered service animals under the ADA.
All service animals are the sole responsibility of the owner and must be in control with a leash, carrier, or other restraints that are appropriate. Any damage to the bus or clean up required is the responsibility of the owner of that service animal. Service animals cannot travel in the aisle or occupy a seat that may otherwise be available to other passengers. Service animals will not be transported in the luggage compartments under the bus. Georgia Coach Lines will not transport any animal that is considered a threat to the health and/or safety of other passengers or Georgia Coach Lines personnel.
