LEARN KITSAP TRANSIT
Kitsap Transit is planning for the future of public transport in our county. We work to:
- Integrate the growth of our bus system with higher-level transit options;
- Further incorporate Passenger-Only Ferries with shore-side options, from buses to fixed guide ways and Washington State Ferries;
- Lower costs of high-demand transit alternatives by sizing stations correctly, preserving and securing sites, and keep pieces of right-of-way;
- Develop complementary transit and land use planning.

Silverdale Transit Center
The current, temporary Silverdale Transfer Center serves ten Kitsap Transit bus routes. It is located adjacent to the The Trails at Silverdale retail center on Greaves Way. Kitsap Transit plans to build a permanent transit center in the Silverdale area that will provide safe, ADA-accessible connections in a pedestrian-friendly location with easy access to shopping, housing and medical and social services. Kitsap Transit's Transit Board selected a location on Ridgetop, across from Harrison Hospital, to move forward with an environmental analysis. The selection was based on a site alternatives analysis. An environmental analysis and traffic study are being conducted and will be factors in the final site selection.
Wheaton Way Transit Center
The current East Bremerton Tranfer Center is located on leased property along Sylvan Way, just west of Wheaton Way. It is served by six Kitsap Transit bus routes. Kitsap Transit plans to build a permanent transit center along the Wheaton Way corridor that will provide safe, ADA-accessible connections in a pedestrian-friendly location with easy access to shopping, housing and medical and social services. Following an alternatives analysis of potential locations and a public hearing, Kitsap Transit's Transit Board selected a location on Wheaton Way, next to the Arby's Restaurant, to move forward with an environmental analysis. Kitsap Transit has acquired the property and is now in the early design phase. You can read the latest on the project here.
North Base/North Viking Park & Ride Project
Kitsap Transit's North Base project is located near the intersection of Hwy. 305 & Viking Road in Poulsbo. This project is funded by multiple grants from the Department of Ecology, Federal Transportation Administration and Washington State Department of Transportation. The agency awarded a contract to Ceccanti, Inc. for the North Base improvements and a new park & ride and transit center facility by Resolution 15-07 on February 3, 2015. The new North Viking Park & Ride will offer 265 parking stalls. The adjacent transit center will replace the roadside location on Hwy. 305 near Lincoln Road and will include space for five buses. The base portion of the project will provide Kitsap Transit with a fueling station, maintenance bay and bus wash.
An aerial video of the work progress was taken in late March, 2016. Click here for a tour of the project.
SR 305 and Suquamish Way Park & Ride
WSDOT continues with roadway improvements at the Hwy. 305 & Suquamish Way intersection. The completed, signaled intersection will include a transit island for deboarding bus passengers. The former Agate Pass Park & Ride lot has been replaced by a ninety-six commuter spaces lot on levels 2 and 3 of the Clearwater Casino east parking garage.
State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA)
Kitsap Transit is a lead agency for the SEPA on transit projects and developments in Kitsap County. This means that we adopt policies and procedures in accordance with SEPA regulations so that we can determine the environmental impact of our projects.
