Kitsap Transit encourages riders to take precautions and be prepared:

  • If your stop is on a hill, please walk to a stop on flat ground.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to get to the bus stop in the snow. Your bus stop may be late during inclement weather, so dress warmly and please be patient.
  • The floor of the bus or ferry may be slippery. Please use caution.
  • Download the Kitsap Transit Tracker mobile app to see the real-time location of your bus or ferry and view the expected time of arrival at your stop.

We prioritize the safety of our passengers and employees. Thank you for your patience. Stay safe out there!
