NYC Subway Banned Dogs Unless They Fit In a Bag, So Owners Got Creative

The rules are clear when it comes to carrying animals on the New York City subway: “No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container.” But the rules say nothing about the size of the animal, and as you can see from this picture, some people got really creative in order to avoid a fine.

NYC subway only allows dogs in bags.

If dog fits in a bag it's allowed on a subway.

    That’s so stupid!
    Why they do that?
    Is it the law?
    You can have a short leash, a muzzle and you’re done!

    Yes it’s always that dirty. It’s worse than you see in the photos. It also smells of urine and vomit.

    Dirty and smelly due to the many humans (tourist and natives alike) who use the subway. MTA workers work their asses off (they power wash the platform and benches) during the overnight hours. More mindful commuters would make a difference. It until people learn to care, it’ll continue to be dirty and smelly.
