Service Animals

The North Township Trustee’s Dial-A-Ride department does not deny or exclude service animals from transportation.

Service animals are defined as animals that are specifically trained to assist individuals with disabilities. Service animals are working animals that perform various tasks, not pets, but trained to guide, alert, or physically assist in movement of the disabled individual.

Service animals can be denied service if they exhibit bad or threatening behavior that could pose a risk to the safety of other passengers or the driver. Repeated documentation of violent or disruptive acts will be reasonable cause to deny future service to noted passenger(s) and their respective service animal(s).
