It's up to drivers to decide whether or not they accept pets in their vehicles.
Pets must be accompanied by their owner while travelling. Note that drivers assume the risk of accepting pets and Poparide is not responsible for any damage caused by pets.
If you are a driver and want to bring your pet in your vehicle, make sure that you let people know in your trip description.
Do drivers accept pets in their vehicles?
On each trip you can see if the driver has indicated if they allow pets in their vehicle, marked by either ‘Pets ok’ or ‘No pets’. When in doubt, we recommend that you message the driver to ask them if they're OK with pets.
Tips for travelling with pets

- Ask the driver if they have a preference for where your pet should sit
- Do not leave your pet unattended

There is no additional charge for pets, however some drivers may ask you to book an extra seat if your pet takes the space of another passenger on the trip. Drivers may request a cash deposit prior to the trip in the event of damage caused by pets.
How many pets can I bring on a trip?
If you are booking a trip with a driver that allows pets, it is up to the driver to decide how many pets are permitted at once.

It’s best practice to keep your pet in a carrier or seated on a cushion while driving to avoid distracting the driver. Make sure you check with provincial regulations for rules on travelling with pets.
Do drivers make frequent stops for pets while driving?
