Taking the Dungeness Line to the Olympic Peninsula with a small dog

I saw a “Dungeness Line” bus in downtown Seattle for the first time yesterday, and I hurried to Google to find out more about it. It turns out to be an Olympic Bus Lines route providing two trips daily between Port Angeles, Sequim, Discovery Bay, Port Townsend and Kingston and several destinations in Edmonds and Seattle (the Edmonds Amtrak station, the Seattle Greyhound station, the Seattle hospitals, the Seattle Amtrak station and Seatac Airport).

Olympic is an independent agent of Greyhound, and Greyhound only allows service dogs on board, so I was astonished to learn that the Dungeness Line allows small dogs in carriers on board, for $5 each way. This is really exciting news, from my point of view, because the Dungeness Line’s destinations are lovely, but a heck of a drive from Seattle. How very nice to have someone else drive you to gorgeous Port Townsend, and the lavender fields of Sequim, and to Port Angeles, the base camp for trips to Hurricane Ridge, the Olympic National Park, and Victoria, B.C.
