—————-

Due to the Seattle dock closure, neither Kitsap Fast Ferries nor King County Water Taxi will operate service during the week of July 22. These services are anticipated to resume on Monday, July 29.

How to get around while Kingston Fast Ferry is suspended

During the service disruption, King County employees who typically ride the Bremerton Fast Ferry can ride WSF’s Bremerton-Seattle service; those who ride the Kingston Fast Ferry can ride WSF’s Bainbridge-Seattle service.

To pay for their WSF fare, King County employees who are currently using the Kitsap Fast Ferries should see a Kitsap Transit Marine Services Ambassador inside the main WSF terminal at Colman Dock in Seattle to obtain a free ticket to ride WSF.
