Our Goals

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 Blvd., across from Harrison Hospital and recently approved the purchase of 1.87 acres of land on Ridgetop Blvd.

Rich Passage Beach Monitoring 

The Rich Passage Wake Research project was designed to investigate the feasibility of fast-ferry service through Rich Passage.  Conducted over more than a decade and a half, the study involved extensive data collection, computerized wave and wake modeling, development and testing of a prototype low-wake vessel and ongoing monitoring of the effects of fast-ferry operations on the shorelines of Rich Passage. The research project has collected periodic measurements of beaches before and during operation of the low-wake optimized vessels. In January 2020 Kitsap Transit and its research project leader met with Rich Passage property owners to discuss the results of measurements taken between 2004 and 2019.
