Bus ser­vices switch to win­ter sched­ule, price of cash tickets re­duced

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

As of last Sun­day, cash tickets on the bus have been re­duced from €2 to €1.50, Malta Pub­lic Trans­port said. This is in line with the an­nual change in fares as reg­u­lated by the govern­ment. The re­duc­tion in the fare could fur­ther en­cour­age the use of pub­lic trans­port, thus help­ing to al­le­vi­ate the con­ges­tion on our streets. Fur­ther­more, the bus ser­vice is now op­er­at­ing ac­cord­ing to the win­ter sched­ule. The fares on all tallinja cards will not be af­fected.

Route X1A has been in­tro­duced again this win­ter to serve Ċirkewwa, Mater Dei, Univer­sity and MCAST in Paola, be­tween Mon­day and Fri­day. An ad­di­tional route 30, serv­ing Bombi, Kulleġġ, Univer­sity and Mater Dei Hos­pi­tal has also been in­tro­duced. These routes have been in­tro­duced in par­tic­u­lar to help stu­dents who are trav­el­ling to the Univer­sity, to the Ju­nior Col­lege and to MCAST cam­pus in Paola. Fur­ther­more, hold­ers of a stu­dent card may avail them­selves of the Stu­dent Pass with which stu­dent card hold­ers may travel for 90 days for €55 thus ben­e­fit­ting from fur­ther sav­ings of €8.00.

The new sched­ules are avail­able on­line on pub­lic­trans­port.com.mt. Due to these changes the ‘Jour­ney Plan­ner’ on the web­site and on the tallinja app are tem­po­rar­ily un­avail­able un­til the up­dates are in place. Dur­ing these few days, Malta Pub­lic Trans­port is also up­dat­ing all timeta­bles on every bus stop in Malta and Gozo.
