More savings for students who choose to travel by bus
In order to encourage more students to use buses for a cleaner environment, Malta Public Transport (MPT) is offering a special Student pass covering three months’ travel for €55.
The offer, which is valid for Tallinja Student Card holders only, grants students a threemonth travel pass on routes operated by MPT. While students already benefit from a monthly capping of €21 on their tallinja card, this offer gives them even more savings when they top up for three months in advance.
“We believe that today’s students are more aware about the environment and we would like to help them make a difference by choosing to travel by bus,” said MPT commercial director Daniel Grech. “We appreciate the student’s contribution to society and we understand that many are on a limited budget. So while we are supporting students by offering preferential travel rates, we are also encouraging them to choose a greener way to travel and reduce traffic congestion on our roads.”
MPT operates routes from all over Malta, making it easy for students to plan their journey to the University, Junior College and MCAST and back home. During peak hours there will be 32 buses an hour covering 25 routes to the University, 61 buses an hour covering 30 routes to Junior College and 43 buses an hour covering 21 routes to MCAST in Paola.
