Sunday Bus Service Begins in Bremerton Sunday, Sept. 24

Starting on Sunday, Sept. 24, Kitsap Transit will begin operating Sunday bus service in Bremerton. 

At the beginning of 2023, we announced our intent to roll out Sunday bus service in phases across Kitsap County, pending successful operator recruitment. We’re very pleased to announce that in a little over two weeks, Kitsap Transit will launch the first phase of its Sunday Service plan.

  • Kitsap Transit will start Bremerton Sunday service with Route 217–Bremerton/Silverdale East, which will operate half-hour service from 8:00 AM to 4:40 PM. You can find the Route 217 Sunday schedule here.
  • Kitsap Transit will also operate On-Demand service between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM on Sundays.
    • Passengers can schedule a ride using the Ride Pingo app anywhere within the service area (see map). You can also call to schedule a ride. You can book a ride immediately or up to two hours in advance.
    • Passengers cannot book an On-Demand Ride if both their pickup and drop-off locations are within 1/4 mile of Route 217. The on-demand service app will automatically calculate the distance to determine whether your trip request is eligible. Click here for an example.
    • If you’re trying to catch a Washington State Ferry or Local Foot Ferry, you can let your driver know through the Ride Pingo App. Select “Transit Connect” during the booking process and the time of the sailing you’re trying to catch.
  • ACCESS service will be available within 3/4 of a mile of our fixed routes. Our foot ferry service between Port Orchard and Bremerton has operated on Sundays since July 2021.
  • We are aiming to implement Sunday service in Port Orchard, Silverdale and Poulsbo in late 2023, and Bainbridge Island in early 2024. 

If you have questions, please contact Kitsap Transit's Customer Service staff by calling 360.373.2877 or 800.501.RIDE.
