Kitsap County's transportation infrastructure provides ready access to a number of modes of transport to serve individuals and business.
|Kitsap has foot ferry service in Kingston, Port Orchard and Bremerton|
Kitsap residents can easily reside in one community and work in another without having to deal with long, frustating commutes by using the well-connected highway system that traverses the county. Washington State Ferries, as well as private ferry businesses, provide a range of ferry services to Seattle from Kingston, Bainbridge Island, Bremerton, and Port Orchard. The Bremerton-Kitsap Airporter runs daily shuttles to and from SeaTac airport.
Certain individuals who lack access to reliable transportation can take advantage of two special transit services offered in the county. Kitsap Access, part of Kitsap Transit, offers shuttle services to the elderly and people with special needs. Paratransit Services, a private, non-profit organization, offers transit services to individuals receiving Medicaid services.
