Cuomo allows pet transportation


New York State will allow people to take pets on any kind of public transportation when evacuating during an emergency.

Officials said the new policy will ensure residents don’t have to choose between their companion animal and their personal safety during hurricanes or other disasters.

Previously, some public transit agencies allowed pets during evacuations while others did not.

Governor Cuomo signed the change into law Tuesday morning.
