Dial-A-Ride is a reservation bus service that operates in specific areas of the county where commuter bus service may be available, but mid-day service is not. Kitsap Transit currently only offers Dial-A-Ride service on Bainbridge Island and in the South Kitsap end of the County. If you are traveling to a destination outside your Dial-A-Ride area, Kitsap Transit will provide transport to the nearest transfer center.
Dial-A-Ride is operated by Kitsap Transits ACCESS program, which normally operates just for the elderly and disabled. Dial-A-Ride service, however, is open to any rider.
Dial-A-Ride is offered on a call-in reservation basis. Riders must call the day before, but no more than 7 days before they want to take a ride.
Individual Dial-A-Ride trips may be grouped with other Dial-A-Ride or ACCESS service trips to the same or nearby destinations. For riders planning a trip for a scheduled appointment or to connect to another Kitsap Transit bus, the trip will be scheduled to meet those specific time needs. For trips with no specific time constraints, riders may be asked to adjust their desired trip time to coordinate with other scheduled trips in their area.
Dial-A-Ride service is not designed to accommodate group trips. If you are making a reservation for more than one person, please notify ACCESS when you call. We will try our best to meet all requested trips but cannot guarantee seating for groups.WHEN DOES DIAL-A-RIDE SERVICE OPERATE?
