Island Transit is a public transit company operating in Galveston, Texas. The company runs bus routes, and a streetcar system, called Galveston Island Trolley.

The system was started in 1893, with its streetcar system, making it the oldest current streetcar system in Texas. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Transit Authority have agreed to fund the repair of the rail cars, that were damaged in Hurricane Ike.[1]
