Need to Get to the Airport?

BKA fares remain the lowest priced way to travel to and from the airport compared to other commercial methods. Our 20 daily trips arrive at SeaTac hourly, beginning at 4:00AM and ending at 11:00PM! Departures from the airport are twenty minutes later!

Travel Tips: Passengers are encouraged to read these comments before making reservations!

BKA has a very reliable and accurate GPS system in use 24/7. Dispatchers have continuous access to this system and are therefore able to advise drivers of traffic tie ups, accidents and road closures! Drivers are then able to find any shortcuts to their destination if any are available!

BKA service personnel are receiving an increasing number of requests to resume airporter service at JBLM. Previous service had been discontinued due to Covid. Accordingly, BKA has reached out to JBLM officials, however our requests for information remain unanswered! If you are also interested in resuming this service, you might consider contacting appropriate service personnel at your command.

We desperately need more drivers! This is an issue that all transportation providers are facing nationwide. If you know of someone who may be interested in driving our buses, please contact our office for particulars!

If you’re considering driving to the airport, why don’t you go instead to a BKA service location and we’ll ride together in one “gas eater”!  If a friend or family member has agreed to take and bring you from SeaTac, this action then involves four one-way trips when traffic incidents are bound to occur!

Please be aware that an additional service location has been added to our schedule. The Poulsbo-Walmart (rear Automotive Repair lot) was added to meet the needs of Poulsbo, Port Gamble, Squamish and Bainbridge Island residents.

To all of our passengers we now have the kiosk at the airport for quicker boarding and departures from the airport: We are located in baggage claim window side by carousel #3 between the Money Exchange and the escalator. Just press the screen to start your OW return from the airport. Please make sure you print your receipt to give to the driver, this is your boarding ticket. Once you have your ticket just proceed out door #2 curbside. Passengers may wait inside the terminal until ten minutes before the departure time.

We wish to thank all of our loyal customers who have seen fit to make shared gratuities to ALL of our inspired customer service personnel, including the drivers! This is added incentive for each of them to perform their duties “above and beyond the call of duty”! Charge card gratuities are distributed to all customer service employees (including drivers)! Additional cash tips received by drivers are not shared, belonging only to the driver, and are gratefully accepted!

Questions or concerns? Call the Kitsap Airporter at 360-876-1737 and immediately after your call is answered, then press “0”. A living person will then answer and who is also anxious to help you with your questions or concerns. We’re here to help you!

For our JBLM passengers we now have 20 daily trips from Ben Dews Clubhouse Grill located at: 6501 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406. Our shuttle’s arrive at SeaTac every hour beginning at 4:00AM until 11:00PM. Departures from the airport are 20 minutes past the hour.

All of our drivers are double hatted as Driver/Customer Service Agents just like our Dispatchers and Reservationists! If you feel that you had received extraordinary customer service from your driver, please feel free to offer an additional cash tip. Written or verbal comments about the performance of any of our customer service personnel is always appreciated!

Heavy road traffic and accidents are just about a daily occurrence these days! Therefore, as recommended by the airlines, please plan to arrive at the airport at least two hours before your flight time! This then, should allow you ample time to check baggage, clear TSA and the other delays caused by a frequently heavy people and vehicle populated airport!

If you make a next day reservation for an early morning or afternoon trip, you will likely be told to call the office (24/7) for your reservations. This is because of the lead time required to update trip manifests and alert appropriate drivers of the necessary changes!

“Drivers wanted: must have a great personality and be willing to work.  We are hiring dependable drivers, must have a Class C or B drivers license with a passenger endorsement, clean driving abstract, drug free and can pass a physical exam.  Call Lauri at (360) 876-1737 or stop by and fill out an application”.
