To Our Customers;

 

Update – Bristol Dock Repair Project
The construction has started.  We hope this project will be completed within four and six weeks. During this period, the ferry will carry only walk-on passengers. 
The Town of Bristol leases the Robin Rug parking lot and will be providing free parking during the construction period. Parking permits will be issued from the Bristol Office.
During construction, the Bristol Ticket Office will be temporarily relocated to the Bristol Armory (where the Bristol Harbor Master’s office is located). Please use the door on the west side of the building. Signs will direct you to our office.
We ask that anyone needing wheelchair accessibility for the ferry please call the Prudence Office at least 24 hours in advance to departure time so that the necessary preparations can be made.
We will be updating our website constantly as new information comes in. For more information on parking or reservations, call the PBIT Office. For more information on the Dock Repairs, call the Town of Bristol. 
The Summer schedule will be online May 1st for reservations.

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.
