Pushchairs and buggies are allowed on buses under certain conditions:
• Access on the bus can be made through any door, with the agreement of the conductor and after validating the ticket.

• To ensure maximum safety, CAM recommends that pushchairs be folded up and that passengers sit with their backs to the road holding their baby in their arms. Likewise, CAM recommends that infants sit with their backs to the road.
• If the bus becomes crowded, you will be asked to fold up your pushchair. It is the conductor's responsibility to remind you.
