More sav­ings for stu­dents who choose to travel by bus

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

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.
