Getting on to or off of the island

Ferry About every 50 minutes, via Washington State Jumbo ferries. Check in advance for possibly long waits. Schedule and other information is available.
Agate Pass Bridge At the north end of the island, connects to the Kitsap peninsula. About ten minutes after each afternoon ferry arrival, this becomes totally clogged until ten minutes after the NEXT ferry arrival. Plan your drive to avoid afternoon rush hour.
Stop lights The island is proud of owning no stop lights. Yet. As of this writing, if you see a stop light, it belongs to Washington State and we disavow all responsibility.

 

Software

From time to time we have run exercises using an emergency simulation program, which generates personalized disaster scenarios. This is available for anyone to download and use, and can be customized for pretty much whatever you can think of.
