Kitsap fast ferry Saturday service begins May 4

Bremerton and Kingston to Seattle

Kitsap Transit will begin its summer Saturday passenger only fast ferry service this weekend.

Starting at 8 round trips per day, the new service will be the first summer Saturday offering for the new Kingston route, which debuted weekday service last November.

The popular Bremerton service will resume for its third summer, offering 10 round trip sailings per day.

In addition, Kitsap Transit will operate a summer Saturday schedule for its Port Orchard foot ferry.

Additional bus service to connect riders to the Saturday sailings will be in place.

Fast ferry riders can also celebrate the April arrival of the M/V Reliance and the expected late summer arrival of the M/V Lady Swift. Both boats are a product of Bellingham’s All American Marine.

Kitsap Transit will be hosting a community meeting on Saturday, May 11, at 10 am at the Kitsap Conference Center to discuss plans for the Bremerton route and the reservation system.
