Bringing a car to Bainbridge Island, either on the ferry from Seattle or by driving from the Kitsap Peninsula, will give you the most flexibility and freedom to explore the island and the surrounding area.
Cars can be rented from Modern Collision Rebuild & Service - advanced reservation is recommended.
New in the summer of 2014 is B.I. RIDE, an island-wide bus service that combines three scheduled stops (including the ferry terminal) with Dial-A-Ride flexibility. The Chamber's successful Froghopper Bus pilot project last summer was the impetus for Kitsap Transit to develop an enhanced transportation program for the island.
Other public bus transportation (Kitsap Transit) is largely geared to commuter needs and hours, although one bus circles from the ferry terminal through Winslow on its way to Poulsbo via State Highway 305 throughout the day. There is no commuter service on Saturdays.
No buses run on Sundays in the Kitsap County, Clallam County or Jefferson County transit systems.Bainbridge Island Taxi (206-842-1021) provides service to the island and nearby.
Kitsap Tours provides half day and full day guided tours of Bainbridge Island and the northern Kitsap Peninsula for groups up to 12 people.
Bike rentals are available in summer from The Bike Barn, located near the ferry terminal and in winter from Classic Cycle.
For thousands of years, the main form of transportation in Puget Sound was by water, and you can get around in kayaks or canoes rented from Back of Beyond Outdoors.
Electric boats in Eagle Harbor can be rented from the Eagle Harbor Inn.
