To Our Customers;

Extra Runs:
Through December 31th: Monday through Wednesday departing Prudence at 10:30 am and departing Bristol at 1:45 pm.

 

New Years Day Schedule: Departing Bristol 9:45am and 3:30pm and departing Prudence 10:15am and 4:15pm.

 

No ferry service on Christmas Day.

 

With the smaller ferry temporarily in service, space is limited. Therefore, if you arrive at the ferry with a vehicle that is longer than what is on your reservation, you will be put on standby until it is clear that space is available.

 

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.

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.
