General Policies and Information A-Z

Accessibility
Kitsap Transit ferries and gangways are wheelchair friendly. Crewmembers will help to ensure a safe and secure ride. The Rich Passage 1 can accommodate up to four mobility devices* on a first-come, first served basis. Passengers can reach the Bremerton Ferry Dock from the bus deck by taking the main elevator down to the boardwalk and following signs to the gangway towards the Foot Ferries. An elevator at the end of the gangway will transport passengers to the ferry dock.

*Mobility Devices are defined by the ADA as "a manually-operated or power-driven device designed primarily for use by an individual with a mobility disability for the main purpose of indoor and outdoor locomotion." Other power-driven mobility devices (OPDMDs) will NOT be allowed aboard the passenger only Rich Passage 1 to maintain the safety of all passengers and crew members. OPDMDs (i.e,  ATVs, Segways, mopeds, scooters, golf carts) infringe upon safe operation due to strict weight limits enacted and enforced by the United States Coast Guard, the high volume of pedestrian traffic, the design and operational characteristics of the vessel (there is no available storage to secure such devices), and the substantial risk posed by combustion-engines containing flammable liquid fuel that is a marine pollutant.

Bicycles
Bicycles are welcome aboard on a first-come first-served basis. Crews will direct passengers on secure placement of their bikes in one of the 12 exterior racks. The current design of the existing bike rack (each with inside openings of 2.25") makes it impossible to safely secure bikes with fenders, disc brakes, or balloon tires. Bicycles that do not fit safely in the bike rack will not be allowed on the vessel. If you would like to test the bike rack and see if your bicycle fits, you may do so using the bike testing rack located on the Bremerton Dock gangway. Chaining your bicycle to the rail of the vessel is prohibited. Vessel weight restrictions also prohibit electric bikes. Shoes with metal sports cleats are not allowed in passenger areas. 

Boarding the Vessel
You must have your bar-coded reservation pass printed or on your mobile device with you when you check in. If you print your reservation, be sure to print the "ticket," not the invoice that comes with your ticket.

Please have your reservation pass out and available to the service ambassador. If you have more than one reservation for a sailing departure, each person must be present to recieve their boarding pass. Only one boarding pass will be issued to each person.

If a sailing is cancelled, all reservations for that sailing will be cancelled. Passengers will be accommodated on a space-available basis on the next available sailing. 

Reservations not redeemed 10 minutes before the sailing will be released to walk-up passengers. 

Service Animals
Only service animals are allowed in Kitsap Transit buildings, vessels, or buses (the only exception is small animals inside a fully enclosed pet carrier not exceeding 25 pounds). Passengers that are traveling with a service animal are responsible, and may be held liable, for its behavior and actions. Kitsap Transit reserves the right to deny transportation, regardless of certification, if any animal poses a direct threat to the health and safety of others. 

Comfort animals, emotional support animals, and service animals in training are not service animals and must be in a fully enclosed pet carrier.

Pets and comfort/emotional support animals will not be allowed to board in a purse, back pack, reusable grocery bag, etc.  Only fully enclosed approved pet carriers are allowed.

Fares
One-way fares are payable with exact cash or ORCA E-purse. Monthly passes can be purchased for round trips. Fares are based on the direction of travel. Passengers can travel to Seattle from Bremerton for the cash fare of $2 and from Seattle to Bremerton for the cash fare of $10. More information on fares can be found on our Kitsap Transit Fares page

Food and Beverages
No food or beverages are sold aboard the Rich Passage 1. Passengers are not allowed to eat in the cabin, and beverages must be in closed containers.

Lost and Found Bremerton Fast Ferry  

Items left aboard the Bremerton vessels will be taken to Kitsap Transit’s Customer Service office after a.m. sailings. Kitsap Transit’s Customer Service Office is located at 10 Washington Avenue inside the Bremerton Transportation Center building. Please call 360.479.2877 before coming to claim your item to make sure we have it.

Kitsap Transit is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Any item not claimed after 30 days is donated to charity.

Park & Ride to the Ferry Terminal
Kitsap Transit offers free commuter parking at park & ride lots across Kitsap County.  Bus service connects park & ride commuters to ferry terminals. Also see Connecting Service above.

Line Cutting or Holding a Spot is Not Permitted

Due to limited seating on the Rich Passage 1, please respect your fellow passengers who arrive early to secure a spot. Line cutting or holding a spot for another person is not permitted. Please join the line in the order you arrive. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Restrooms
The Rich Passage 1 has two restrooms on board, both of which are ADA compliant. There are also public restrooms along the Bremerton boardwalk for your convenience.

Transfers
Orca E-purse transfers offer free connecting service within two hours of initial travel. If the next connecting service charges a higher fare, you pay only the additional amount.
