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.
Our ferry navigates the roughly 30 minute journey from Bristol, RI to Prudence Island, RI. Our dedicated staff and crew are comprised of many Prudence Island residents who know firsthand the needs of our customers. No matter if you are a full-time island resident, a summer renter or simply a day visitor we strive to make the journey over to Prudence Island as hassle free as possible. Please continue to check out our website to find all the up to date information on ferry news, schedules and for on-line reservations for passengers and vehicles.
Communication between island residents, Bristol and Portsmouth town officials, business owners, and any other interested party is welcome. On the last Saturday in June every year we will hold a public meeting at 9:00am at the PIA Hall. We encourage you to attend!
