Island Transit

Our mission is to provide high quality bus and trolley service for Galveston and its visitors. 
Island Transit, the City Of Galveston’s public transportation system, has served the citizens of Galveston since the mid 1960’s. During 1991, the City replaced the fixed route transit buses, all of which are now ADA accessible. The Island Transit service area covers 27 square miles.

In 1988, the City revived the fixed rail trolley, serving Seawall Boulevard, 25th Street, downtown and the historic Strand District. The trolley system was expanded in 1995 and 2003 to include areas of the Galveston Wharf and University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) Campus. The Galveston Island Trolley service area covers 6 miles serving as a connection between the Downtown District and the Seawall.  In 2008, Hurricane Ike severely damaged the trolleys causing the need to suspend the trolley service.  Currently the City of Galveston is coordinating with consultants to analyze the Island Trolley service.

Island Transit is a public transportation system serving Galveston, Texas with connections to the Mainland and Victory Lakes.
