UPDATE: Bremerton-Seattle fast ferry will operate as normal Monday morning

The Rich Passage 1 was taken out of service Friday for technical issues.

The Bremerton-Seattle fast ferry will return to normal service on Monday, spokesperson Sanjay Bhatt said via email.

The announcement follows canceled sailings on Friday afternoon due to technical problems.

The Rich Passage 1 had departed for Seattle at 3:15 p.m when an issue with the electrical equipment that controls its water jets was discovered, Bhatt told the Kitsap Sun.

The ferry was taken out of service and remaining sailings that day were canceled.

The ferry does not sail on weekends during the fall and winter months.

Following repairs and sea trials the vessel will return to its regular route Monday, per Kitsap Transit.
