There is a Skagit Transit bus stop located on Guemes Island near the ferry landing. The bus will park there when it is not on the road. The driver will take passengers who arrive on the 11:15am ferry to their destinations, then take a lunch break from 11:45am - 12:30pm while the ferry is not running. The shuttle will run on approved roads only, the driver and dispatch will have this list. If you need any special accommodations, please let the driver or dispatcher know.
