Kitsap Transit will add four sailings between Bremerton and Seattle tonight for Seahawks preseason game

Move accommodates reduced capacity on WSF’s Bremerton-to-Seattle route

Kitsap Transit will be adding four fast-ferry sailings to the Bremerton to Seattle route Thursday night for the Seahawks’ last preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.

Given the reduced, 90-vehicle-capacity of the Washington State Ferry M/V Sealth having replaced the 188-vehicle-capacity M/V Walla Walla on the Bremerton-to-Seattle route, Kitsap Transit has opted to lend a hand in hopes of reducing the burden and minimizing the impact on public transit.

The fast ferry will depart the Bremerton ferry dock at 9:40 p.m. and 11:10 p.m. The fast ferry will depart Pier 50 in Seattle at 10:30 p.m. and 11:50 p.m. Travel time is approximately 30 minutes.

The Bremerton-to-Seattle fast ferry, which seats up to 118 passengers, will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Kitsap Transit advises people to expect longer than usual lines. The fast ferry can also accommodate a limited number of bicycles, transit officials said.

The Seahawks game is set to start at 7 p.m. at CenturyLink Field. For additional information, contact customer service at 800-501-RIDE.
