route eliminated

Pelican Island Route Eliminated Beginning June 14

The City of Galveston will discontinue its fixed-route bus services to and from Pelican Island effective June 14, 2019.

The route is no longer cost effective due to low ridership and passenger demand. Island Transit currently operates two round-trips a day, five days a week to Texas A&M University campus. The route averages about three round-trip passengers per day and some days there are no riders on the Pelican Island portion of the route. Beginning Friday, Route 1, will no longer include Pelican Island.
