To Our Customers;

 

Update – Bristol Dock Repair Project Delayed
A&R Marine met with Sum-Co contractors, as well as Pare Engineering and town officials this morning, Thursday, May 18th.  Due to the collapse of the southwest wall, Pare Engineering calculated their new project completion date to be June 11th . A&R Marine asked the town of Bristol’s permission to start our portion of the project prior to Sum-Co’s completion.  We were told there may be liability, as well as contractual, issues to proceed in this direction.  So, at this time, we do not have a firm start date for A&R’s segment of the project. .   If you need a ride to your island home, please call the Prudence Ferry Office, and sign up to get a ride to and from your home by one of your fellow islanders. The Bristol Harbor Master’s Office has been kind enough to accommodate us during the dock project. It is our hope that you treat them with kindness and respect while we continue to share their work space.
For more information on parking or reservations, call the PBIT Office. For more information on the Dock Repairs, call the Town of Bristol. 
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.
