Why pets should be allowed on Sydney's public transport | Dog Friendly Travel & Lifestyle | Scoop.it
A new study by University of Sydney researchers suggests dog owners would drive less if they had greater freedom to travel with their pets on public transport.

"If dogs weren't restricted from riding on public transport, this high number of car trips for dogs could be reduced," Dr Kent said. The benefits would extend far beyond fewer cars on the road, by potentially getting people moving more with their dogs and socially connected.
