Route Detour for Sportsman Club Construction
Construction on Sportsman Club Road will close the southbound lane starting Monday morning, June 17 through Friday, June 21. Kitsap Transit's #93 Manzanita bus will need to detour, remaining on Hwy. 3 on morning trips and bypassing Sportsman Club Road and New Brooklyn Road. The Island Church Park & Ride and North Town Woods neighborhood will not be served.
Riders who normally park at Island Church Park & Ride should use Bethany Lutheran Park & Ride instead, and catch the #95 Battle Point bus to and from the ferry.
Riders at North Town Woods and other riders on New Brooklyn can catch the #106 bus on New Brooklyn in the morning.
The #93 Manzanita bus will operate a normal route in the afternoons.
Service is expected to return to normal starting Monday morning, June 24.

Construction Detour - Bus to Remain on Hwy. 305
Starting Monday, May 20
Flagged and one-way traffic and occasional closures on Madison Avenue are expected to cause heavy back-ups and delays. To ensure the bus can maintain its schedule, starting May 20 until approximately June 30, the #90 bus will not serve the Winslow Way, Madison, High School Road loop on weekdays. Affected trips include the 8:55am, 10:50am and 2:15pm weekday departures from the Poulsbo Transfer Center and the 8:40am, 1:00pm, 2:05pm and 2:45pm weekday departures from Bainbridge. Saturday service will not be impacted and will operate normally.
Kitsap Transit filling in for cancelled Navy shuttles
In March, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard eliminated on-base commute-hour shuttles due to budget cutbacks.
Kitsap Transit is running three Worker/Driver buses, driven by W/D operators with the appropriate security clearances, to serve shipyard employees. The buses run during the morning and afternoon peaks and do not affect existing W/D routes.
KT shuttles operate from 5:40am to 7:00am and from 3:30pm to 4:05pm weekdays, making stops as needed. The last scheduled departure for pick-ups is 4:05pm. The buses operate from the Montgomery Parking Lot/Garage to the Main Gate, from the Missouri Gate F-Lot to the Main Gate, and a loop inside the Controlled Industrial Area.
The cash fare is $1 and is collected in the morning only. Riders with a TIP pass loaded on an ORCA card can tap to pay their fare. Riders with ORCA E-purse will want to pay cash, as the system will collect the standard $2 full fare instead of the $1.
