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 tickets 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.
