More sav­ings for stu­dents who choose to travel by bus

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

In or­der to en­cour­age more stu­dents to choose the bus for a cleaner environment, Malta Pub­lic Transport is of­fer­ing a spe­cial Stu­dent Pass of 3 months travel for €55.

This of­fer, which is valid for Tallinja Stu­dent Card hold­ers only, grants stu­dents a 3-month travel pass on routes op­er­ated by Malta Pub­lic Transport. While stu­dents al­ready ben­e­fit from a monthly cap­ping of €21 on their tallinja card, this of­fer gives stu­dents 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,” main­tained Daniel Grech, Com­mer­cial Di­rec­tor at Malta Pub­lic Transport. “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.”

Malta Pub­lic Transport op­er­ates a num­ber of routes from var­i­ous lo­cal­i­ties all over Malta, mak­ing it eas­ier for stu­dents to plan their jour­ney to Univer­sity, Ju­nior Col­lege and MCAST and back to their lo­cal­ity. Dur­ing peak hours there will be 32 buses per hour covering 25 routes to Univer­sity, 61 buses per hour covering 30 routes to Ju­nior Col­lege and 43 buses per hour covering 21 routes to MCAST in Paola.
