Reminder - Temporary Schedule for Two Weeks for Sea/BI and Sea/Brem: Jan. 4 - 20

All trips between the Seattle terminal, Bainbridge Island, and Bremerton will follow a temporary sailing schedule beginning on Saturday, Jan. 4 through Jan. 20, 2020, as construction to replace the state’s seismically vulnerable flagship ferry terminal moves forward.

Find out more about the temporary sailing schedule and ways to plan ahead. The temporary schedules can also be viewed on the regular Seattle/Bainbridge and Seattle/Bremerton schedule pages

Kitsap Transit will also be making the following temporary adjustments to its Port Orchard Ferry and Bremerton Fast Ferry service on weekdays:

The 4:30 a.m. Port Orchard Ferry will depart at 4:25 a.m. so passengers can make the revised 4:45 a.m. WSF departure from Bremerton.

In the afternoon, WSF will have one fewer ferry trip, leaving a gap between its 5:35 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. departures from Seattle.  As a result, Kitsap Transit will add temporary Fast Ferry trips departing Seattle at 5:55 p.m. and 7:10 p.m. (walk-ups only, no reservations).
