The Port of Galveston announced that 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. This agreement will commence on January 1, 2016.

As part of the interlocal contract between the Wharves Board and the City of Galveston, the Wharves Board agreed to pay $87,000 to the City to cover the local share for the acquisition for four new shuttle buses dedicated primarily to cruise ship passenger services.

“The City of Galveston’s Island Transit has been an invaluable partner with the Port since year round cruises began operating from the Port in 2000. We look forward to continuing this partnership with Island Transit in providing a top notch experience for our cruise passengers”, said Mike Mierzwa, Port Director.
