If you’ve been on a bus or SkyTrain car recently, you might have noticed that some peevish pets have made their way onto the system. As promised, our award winning Facebook campaign, Transit Pet Peeves, are now part of  TransLink’s overall etiquette on transit program!

These first four characters, Funky Ferret, Hungry Hamster, Disco Dog and Chatty Chihuahua, will be up for six months. After that, Blocking Bunny, Birdy Big Bags, Crowding Kitty and Lounge Lizard will take their place.

And Transit Pet Peeves aren’t unique to just Metro Vancouver anymore. We just found out that our furry and scaly characters are such a hit that they’ll be using them on Calgary Transit as well!

Transit etiquette is always a popular topic and we’d love to know your thoughts on it. Let us know if you recognize these characters or perhaps know of some others!
