Link to Kitsap County's Mission Statement

Washington State Ferries Advisory Committees

Washington State Ferries committees were established in the early 1960s by the Marine Division of Washington State Ferries to promote improvements in the ferry system through interaction with Washington State Ferries, the Transportation Commission and the State Legislature.

Meeting Times and Locations
Vary according to community and current needs.

Kitsap County Ferries Advisory committees represent terminals in Bainbridge Island, Kingston Bremerton and Southworth.

Appointments are made by regions, with Kitsap County members appointed as follows: Bainbridge Island (District 1 Commissioner); Bremerton (District 2 Commissioner); Kingston (District 1 Commissioner); Southworth (District 2 Commissioner). 

On July 10, 2001, the Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council (KRCC) confirmed a recommendation by the KRCC Transportation Policy Committee increasing the Kitsap County Ferries Advisory committees to five members.  The additional members were authorized to collect input from ferry riders and keep them informed on issues related to ferry service, and conduct public meetings with the Washington State Ferries on terminal issues related to quality of services and scheduling. The committees were further authorized to represent ferry riders to the KRCC, which coordinates and presents the concerns of all Kitsap ferry riders to Washington State Ferries and the State Legislature on issues affecting funding or allocation of regional transportation.
