In this article we will explain the best tips to be able to take your pet with you anywhere in Valencia using public transport.
Very often animal lovers find it very difficult to move around their city with them in a comfortable and practical way. For this reason, many are forced to always use the car to go to the vet or simply to move from one point to another.
However, this is often due to a lack of information about other sustainable mobility options for traveling with your pet. That is why in this article we will explain the best tips to be able to take it with you anywhere in Valencia using public transport.
Since 2019, EMT Valencia passengers who have a pet can travel on urban buses in the city. However, there are some mandatory requirements to be able to travel with your pet:
To obtain this card, you must present the corresponding application form, the veterinarian's card that verifies the animal's condition, as well as a photo of the pet's passport that allows it to be easily identified. This procedure will have to be done at the Citizen Service Office, located at Carrer de Mendoza, 5, 46001 Valencia.
This measure represents a great advance for those people who, on a frequent basis, travel through Valencia with their pet, thus betting on a more economical, sustainable and accessible way of moving.
In the case of Metrovalencia there is less regulation on journeys with a pet. In this regard, the only animals allowed are:
Although there may be cases where some people travel with their pets simply on a leash or even without it, this action is strictly prohibited at the risk of receiving penalties and even not being able to travel.
Another way to move sustainably with your pet in Valencia is to use Renfe Rodalies. Animals are allowed on the train under the following conditions:
Renfe is betting on the reconciliation of passengers and companion animals on commuter trains to make it easier for pet lovers to travel in Valencia.
Although there is no recent information on whether or not pets are allowed on Metrobus, the latest news explains that at the moment you cannot travel with your pet on the Metrobus line. However, the users of this service are increasingly asking for a similar regulation to be applied to other means of public transport that allow them to bet on sustainable mobility regardless of whether you travel alone or accompanied by your pet.
