Transit buses now announce shelter openings

POULSBO — Kitsap Transit’s bus headsigns now display a message each time Kitsap County’s Severe Weather Shelter opens.

When the decision is made to open the shelter for the night, the county Department of Emergency Management will notify Kitsap Transit’s Dispatch Center. A radio broadcast will be made to all operators on the road to code their headsigns for the announcement. Each bus headsign will then alternate between their route number and name and the message “SEVERE WEATHER SHELTER OPEN.”

Kitsap County has one Severe Weather Shelter, at Bremerton Food Line, 1600 12th St.
