General Policies and Information A-Z

Kitsap Transit ferries and gangways are wheelchair friendly. Crewmembers will help to ensure a safe and secure ride. Kitsap Transit can accommodate up to five mobility devices* on the Southworth Ferry on a first-come, first served basis. 

*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 vessle 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 are welcome aboard on a first-come first-served basis. Crews will direct passengers on secure placement of their bikes in one of the 26 exterior racks. Bicycles that do not fit safely in the bike rack will not be allowed on the vessel. Chaining your bicycle to the rail of the vessel is prohibited. Shoes with metal sports cleats are not allowed. 

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.

One-way fares are payable with exact cash, ORCA E-purse or the Transit GO app. Monthly passes can be purchased for round trips. Fares are based on the direction of travel. Passengers can travel to Seattle from Kitsap County for the cash fare of $2 and from Seattle to Kitsap County 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. Passengers are not allowed to eat in the cabin, and beverages must be in closed containers.

Lost and Found Southworth Fast Ferry
Items left aboard Southworth vessels will be held on the vessel for 30 days. You can claim a lost and found item within 30 days by asking a crew member for the item. 

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. 

Line Cutting or Holding a Spot is Not Permitted
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.

Shoes with metal sports cleats are not allowed in passenger areas.

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.  

Kitsap Transit does not offer internet service at this time.
