Pier 54 to be new Seattle landing for fast ferry

BREMERTON — Beginning Aug. 7, Kitsap Transit’s fast-ferry vessel Rich Passage 1 will begin docking in Seattle at Pier 54 instead of Pier 50.

The move is needed because a contractor for Washington State Ferries will be moving the passenger-only ferry facility to the north side of Colman Dock next to the fire station.

Kitsap Transit and Argosy Cruises have agreed to temporarily share the Pier 54 dock space until the work is completed. Half a mile north of Pier 50, the dock at Pier 54 is next to the famous Ye Olde Curiosity Shop and a Harley-Davidson store.

Kitsap Transit’s fast-ferry service will maintain its current weekday sailing schedule, said spokesman Sanjay Bhatt. On weekday afternoons, most sailings on both sides of Puget Sound will depart up to 45 minutes later; the fast ferry will depart Bremerton at 4:05 p.m., 5:17 p.m. and 6:27 p.m. The vessel will depart Seattle at 4:42 p.m., 5:52 p.m. and 7:02 p.m. Some sailing times will change, as well, Bhatt said.

One the passenger-only ferry facility reopens on the north side of Colman Dock, scheduled for Aug. 14, the vessel will dock at that location for up to 18 months or until Pier 50 reopens.

A new passenger-only ferry facility, expected to open there in fall 2018, will be sheltered from the weather and connected by a pedestrian bridge to the Washington State Ferries terminal building.

As construction proceeds at Colman Dock, Kitsap Transit may revisit its fast ferries departure and arrival times, Bhatt said.
