Kitsap Transit's Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on July 5, 2022 to hear public comment and vote on proposed changes to the agency's fare policy. If approved, the changes would go into effect on Sept. 1, 2022.
Two changes are being considered:
- The first change would allow riders under age 19 to ride free of charge on all Kitsap Transit services. This would allow Kitsap Transit to receive formula and grant funds from Move Ahead Washington, the state transportation funding package that allocates $3 billion to public transportation over the next 16 years.
- The second proposed change would restructure Kitsap Transit's vanpool program fare structure. The current structure has hundreds of fares that vary by vehicle capacity, number of passengers and distance traveled. The proposed change would simplify the structure into four tiered bands, with a fixed monthly rate per rider based on daily round-trip miles.
You can learn more about the proposals at two public meetings at 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM on Wednesday, June 15, via Zoom. For meeting information, visit kitsaptransit.com/meetings.
Public comments on the proposal can be submitted through Monday, July 4, and at the public hearing. To learn more and submit a comment, visit kitsaptransit.com/fares.
