Guide Dogs clients in a Guide Dogs cab

A new Guide Dogs cab has hit the streets of Brisbane!

In celebration of International Guide Dog Day, Yellow Cabs unveiled a brand new cab featuring a Guide Dog in harness along with the message that “Our dogs don’t chase cars, they catch cabs”.

While meant to be cute and give people a smile, the message also aims to help educate the community of the access rights of our Guide Dogs clients so their trip in all forms of transport is a pleasant one.

Under Queensland law, Guide Dogs can accompany their handlers anywhere a sighted person can go, including accommodation, cafes, restaurants and all transport (including planes, trains and automobiles).

Our thanks to Yellow Cabs for helping us spread the message that “Guide Dogs can go anywhere”.

If you’re out an about in the Brisbane area, make sure you keep an eye out for it around town!
