Regional cards also offer discounts on transit agencies across the region, such as Pierce Transit or Metro.

  • Personal-Care Attendant - Attendant traveling with eligible disabled customer.

Transfer Policy

ORCA card users who pay their regular or reduced fare from E-purse are entitled to a free 2-hour transfer. ORCA transfers are good in any direction of travel at any location. Transfers are free between Kitsap Transit vehicles. When transferring to a Pierce, Metro, Community, Sound or Everett Transit vehicle within 2 hours, riders will be given credit for the fare paid, paying only the difference in fares.

Riders paying with cash can request a paper transfer. Paper transfers are valid at transfer centers and transfer points only for the next connecting Kitsap Transit bus or foot ferry. Paper transfers are NOT valid on Kitsap Transit Fast Ferries. 


The monthly cost of riding a Kitsap Transit vanpool is determined by the size of the van and the number of daily round-trip miles the van travels. The total fare is divided among the members of the vanpool. Click here for the vanpool fare chart.
