Planning

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.
