Kitsap Transit is the service provider for Kitsap County, Washington. They operate fixed route (some with limited DART areas), Access (door-to-door), Worker/Driver, the Kitsap Transit Foot Ferry (Between Port Orchard, Annapolis and Bremerton), vanpools, SCOOT (Smart Commuter Option Of Today) and Vanlink.

The Worker/Driver uses 40' MCI 102D3s, which were purchased in 2011 and 2012. "Worker/Driver buses are driven by full time employees (“worker”) of the military facilities who are also part time employees of Kitsap Transit (“drivers”). Buses operate much like a large carpool. The driver boards their bus near their home in the morning and travels to work, picking up co-workers along the way. After work, they hop back in their bus with their co-workers and drop them off on their drive" (from Kitsap Transit's website).
