Seattle Fast-Ferry Terminal Siting Study


Kitsap Transit is evaluating options for an alternative downtown Seattle landing site to support ongoing operations and growth of its popular passenger-only ferry (POF) service, Kitsap Fast Ferries. The service currently operates two routes -- Bremerton/Seattle and Kingston/Seattle -- and will launch a third route soon from Southworth to downtown Seattle

Currently, Kitsap Transit shares use of Pier 50 in downtown Seattle with King County Metro Marine Division, the owner of the facility and operator of two Water Taxi routes. Pier 50's dock can accommodate only two passenger-only ferries at the same time.

The goal of the Seattle Fast-Ferry Terminal Siting Study is to identify a preferred location to support the long-term operation of three Kitsap Fast Ferry routes.
