RIDE KITSAP TRANSIT

Summer 2024 Service Changes

In June 2024, Kitsap Transit will significantly change its fixed-route structure to accommodate the new Silverdale Transit Center opening on Ridgetop Boulevard near St. Michael’s Medical Center. The current Silverdale Transit Center below The Trails shopping center will be permanently closed. A new route will serve The Trails using different stops.

The proposed changes include adding two new local Silverdale routes, adding hours and frequency on some routes, redrawing route patterns to serve the new transit center, adding or moving bus stops, and removing three routes. 

Routes 212, 217, 223, 301 and 332 will travel to the new transit center. Routes 235, 237 and 333 will be removed. These areas will be covered by new Routes 265 and 266, plus Routes 223, 301, 332 and 338Routes 265, 266 and 332 will operate extended hours every half-hour. See the table and maps below for full details. 


In addition, other routes will be modified as part of our June service change: 

  • Routes 97, 98, 219, 344 and 390 will have adjusted timepoints for better connections.
  • Route 338 will resume service, operating from 4:42 AM­ to 7:35 AM and 3:45 PM to 8:34 PM. Additionally, Route 338 will serve the bus stop on Highway 305 at Highschool Road.  Click here for Route 338 details and map.  
  • Route 221 will no longer serve Kitsap Mental Health Services on Almira Drive or streets north of Riddell Road. Route 223 will serve Kitsap Mental Health Services and Almira Drive north of Riddell Road and Fuson Road.  
  • Starting on May 4, 2024, Fast Ferry Summer Service will resume and Routes 86 and 307 will operate Saturday service. 
  • Starting on June 16, 2024, Sunday bus service for Port Orchard, Poulsbo and Silverdale will begin: Route 8 will operate Sundays from 8:00 AM to 4:25 PM.
