Drivers are not obliged to assist passengers, but may provide minor assistance for a passenger at the discretion of the driver. Passengers acknowledge that they must be able to move and place their own luggage on and off the bus and within the bus. Passengers also acknowledge that their luggage must be stowed safely and securely.

Without limiting any other entitlement of the driver to direct passengers, each passenger agrees that in the case of an apparent emergency or breakdown, the driver may direct passengers to leave or reboard a bus, to move to a particular place of safety or to another bus or to take such other actions as appear reasonable to South East Airport Shuttle or the driver at the time.
At the time of travel, an animal that is allowed to journey with a passenger on a Melbourne Public Transport Bus Service without restrictions or to travel with a passenger in the cabin of a domestic airline service, will also be permitted to travel on South East Airport Shuttle. At October 2012 this means you may travel with:
A guide dog, hearing guide dogs or guide dogs in training.
Animals covered by the Assistance Animal Pass (which must be available and produced on demand).
Travel with these animals is subject to general restrictions and South East Airport Shuttle may refuse carriage if it considers (at its sole discretion) that an animal may cause a disturbance, become savage or may risk harm to itself, its owner, other passengers and staff. On services where seating availability and space is limited, staff may request passenger and animal to board an alternative service or to sit in a specified seat.
