Captains Cards

Prudence & Bay Islands Transport is pleased to announce the use of Captain’s Cards. This is a rechargeable card that can be used to pay for tickets or make reservations online, over the phone or in person. If you have an online account with us, the Captain’s Card can be attached and stored so you do not have to input your card information every time. The Captain’s Card can be purchased at either office and recharged in person or over the phone. They do not have an expiration date and make excellent gifts.
