Motorcycles should proceed, while on the dock, at no more than 10 mph. Use caution when car decks are wet. The following information details specific staging for this terminal:

There is no payment for passengers or bicycles traveling from Bremerton to Seattle. Bicyclists may bypass the line of vehicle traffic to get onto the ferry dock. A rider does not need to stop at the tollbooth traveling eastbound. Bicyclists should arrive 20 minutes prior to departure time to be loaded at the beginning of loading process. If a bicyclist arrives after vehicle loading has begun, they will be loaded at the end of the load. There are five racks at the terminal which hold 28 bikes.

Bremerton terminal HOV vans and carpools are asked to be at the dock 10 minutes before sailing and are staged in a special lane under the transit terminal. HOV’s are loaded first and if they arrive late, during the loading process, are loaded as soon as possible. Car/van pools need to be registered or a recognized HOV with the ferry system HOV program, to receive loading privileges. For information or to register for our rideshare program check Rideshare.
