Food and Drink Policy

Stroller/Non-Mobility Device Policy
Patrons must remove children from strollers. Strollers must be folded down and stored away from the aisle while the bus is in motion.
All carts, strollers, luggage and any other large item brought on board a GCT bus must not block the aisle or doorways or deprive another customer of a seat or a wheelchair customer from use of the securement area. Folding carts must be folded and kept under control by the customer while on board the bus.
The best example of devices that are not considered a mobility device and may be prevented from boarding on GCT vehicles, are shopping carts, non-folding strollers and wheeled-baskets, bicycles, and other devices not specifically designed to assist an individual with a disability and/or their mobility.
GCT recognizes that walkers and rolling walkers, canes, crutches and similar items are designed for, and used as, mobility aids. Based on the definition of mobility equipment, carts are not intended to be used as mobility aids or devices. While some people do use commercial carts for this purpose, GCT does not support carts for such use on buses.
