To Our Customers; 

When booking online if your vehicle is under 1 ton and over 18 ft., you will be defaulted to a 20 ft. truck fee. If your truck is under or over 20 ft. and you would like to pay the exact fee, please call the office at 401.683.0430 during phone hours, or upon arrival your vehicle may be measured and your fee adjusted.

 

When booking online, 2000 to 2016 vehicles have been updated to the correct length and fee. We are in the process of updating vehicles 1999 and older. Please call the office if your vehicle is 1999 or older to pay the accurate price. Thank you for your patience. 

 

Our new text messaging system is now in place. If you are not receiving text messages, stop in the Prudence office and let us know.

Welcome!

Prudence & Bay Islands Transport was formed by Prudence Island residents to provide transportation needs to and from our island and other bay islands. What makes us different is we know what it’s like to leave by boat every day to go to work or school. We know what challenges there are to running a business on island and scheduling supplies to be brought over. And we know how important it is to keep to a schedule.

Captains Cards

Prudence & Bay Islands Transport is pleased to announce the use of Captains Cards.
This is a rechargeable card that can be used to make reservations online, over the phone or in person, as well as purchasing ticket at the office. If you have an online account for reservations, the Captain’s Card can be attached and will be remembered so you do not have to input your card information every time. The Captain’s Card can be purchased at the Prudence Pier Office and recharged at either office or over the phone. They will make excellent gifts. No expiration dates.
