Our ferry office uses a text alert system to notify customers of ferry cancellations due to weather as well as changes to the regular ferry schedule. Changes to the regular schedule include the addition of ferry runs on busy weekends or added service runs during the week. This system also allows the office to notify individual customers if they have oversize packages waiting for them. The text alert system we currently utilize is a free system to send and receive messages however standard text messaging rates may apply to the recipient.
In order to receive text alerts we must have your correct cell phone number as well as cell carrier (Verizon, AT&T etc.)
Rarely individuals have been unable to receive text alerts possibly due to limitations of the free alert system or due to specific phone or carrier settings. If you have tried signing up for text alerts but are still not receiving our messages please email us so we can try troubleshoot the issue with you.
To sign up for text messaging, stop by the Prudence Office during office hours or fill out the form below. To sign up you must provide your name, phone number and cell phone carrier service.
If you are currently signed up for text message alerts please inform the Prudence Island office (by emailing ARmarine-Office@pi-ferry.com or calling 401-683-0430 during phone hours) if you change your phone number or cell phone carrier so the proper changes can be made in our system.
