Kitsap Transit announced Wednesday that the 240-passenger ferry M/V Finest will be out of service due to repairs, with the 172-passenger Melissa Ann stepping in to serve the Kingston to Seattle route.

The 2:35 p.m. and 3:25 p.m. sailings have been canceled.

Based on recent ridership trends, KT anticipates the Melissa Ann will reach capacity on the 5:05 p.m. departure from Seattle and may reach capacity on the 7:05 a.m. departure from Kingston. Customers who have flexibility in their travel plans are encouraged to consider less-popular sailing times, such as the 5:25 a.m. or 8:45 a.m. sailings from Kingston as well as the 3:25 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. sailings from Seattle.
