Results from Our Recent Survey

Would a foot ferry between Bremerton and Bainbridge Island help your business?
In a recent survey conducted across the Kitsap Chambers of Commerce, 46% of responding business leaders in the Central Kitsap region (primarily Bremerton and Silverdale) indicated that a fast ferry option from Bremerton would help them.
In all, across more than 200 respondents, about 55% of those outside Central Kitsap thought the ferry service would help their business.
While a fast ferry service from Bainbridge to Bremerton is just one of the new intra-county transportation ideas being proposed, the survey results indicate merit for further investigation as part of a larger multi-modal community transit plan.
