Rideshare Vehicle Registration Rules

To register as a Smart Commuter in Kitsap Transit's Rideshare Vehicle Registration Program, you must regularly carpool or vanpool at least three days a week. To register, please complete this form.  In lieu of a signature, please include your middle name, where requested, for confirmation.

In approximately ten days your Rideshare Vehicle Registration will be processed and your Pool Manager will be sent a pass and valid permit. If your employer participates in Kitsap Transit's Guaranteed Ride Home program, each carpool or vanpool member may be eligible for a Guaranteed Ride Home.

Rideshare Vehicle Rules

  • Rideshare vehicles must have two or more registered adult members.
  • Ridesharers must travel together at least three days a week to employment sites. At all public park & ride lots, carpools exercising their carpool privileges must clearly display a valid carpool permit and have at least two licensed people in the car at the time the car is parked.  There are no exceptions.  (Note: at some employer lots that are participating in Kitsap Transit's Smart Commuter program, the employer may allow their carpoolers to park in carpool spaces when they are driving alone.  This policy is NOT allowed at public park & ride lots.)
  • Ridesharers parking at a Ferry Terminal lot must rideshare each working day.  Ferry Terminal ridesharers may only use free registered rideshare spaces on days that at least two pool members ride into the lot together.  Otherwise, pay to park. 
  • The pass, with valid permit, must be clearly displayed in the registered parked vehicle, visible to personnel patrolling the area.
  • Your rideshare permit may be transferred between registered vehicles in your pool, but only one may use preferential parking at any given time.
  • Your permit may not be duplicated, or transferred to a vehicle not listed on your application.
  • If you forget your pass, you must inform your employer and/or Kitsap Transit immediately in order to park in a preferential space. If you lose your pass, contact Kitsap Transit. There is a $10 administrative fee for reissuing a lost or stolen pass and permit sticker.
