Galveston to add four new cruise shuttle buses

Galveston to add four new cruise shuttle buses
The Board of Trustees of the Galveston Wharves approved a five-year agreement with the city of Galveston for cruise terminal shuttle bus services at Monday’s board meeting. The agreement will commence Jan. 1.

The Wharves Board agreed to pay $87,000 to the city to cover the local share for the acquisition for four new shuttle buses primarily for cruise ship passenger services.

Galveston's Island Transit has been an 'invaluable partner with the port' since year-round cruises began operating in 2000, Port of Galveston director Mike Mierzwa said. He added the port looks forward to continuing this partnership with Island Transit to provide a top-notch experience for cruise visitors.
