This summer marks the roll-out of a new type of transportation for Bainbridge Island. The Frog Hopper Bus Service is run by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce with financial support from the City of Bainbridge Island Lodging Tax Fund and numerous community sponsors and advertisers.
Now, the thousands of people who come to Bainbridge each year as foot passengers on the Washington State Ferries have a chance to visit attractions around the entire island, including:
- The Bloedel Reserve, internationally renown public garden
- The Japanese American Exclusion Memorial (National Historic Monument)
- Lynwood Center neighborhood service center
- Fay Bainbridge Park
- Battle Point Park
- Rolling Bay neighborhood service center
- Bainbridge Gardens
- The Grand Forest
- Fort Ward Park
- Frog Rock
For a standard fare of $7, an all-day pass is good hopping on and off one or both loop routes. Senior, child & disabled fare is $5, and a family pass for 3-5 people is $20.
The busses, provided by Agate Pass Transportation, are ADA compliant and have bike racks.
Both busses return to the ferry through downtown Winslow, so riders won’t miss the chance to check out the shops, restaurants and museums. Or stop at the Chamber’s visitor center for information.
Enjoy the ride!
