Public Transport in Malta
how to travel around the Maltese Islands without the stress
To our guests coming to Malta, we recommend the two ways to get around the islands safely and conveniently. These are either public transport (an extensive network of connections) or the Bolt app (the local equivalent of Uber).



By bus around Malta
The various methods of public transport is managed by the conveniently named Malta Public Transport (MPT) – it is easy to recognize the characteristics of the white and green buses on the streets. Before arriving in Malta, it is worth downloading the Tallinja App to your smartphone to get the latest updates on the bus’s arrival time as well as any recommended routes to utilise when selecting this service.

Single bus tickets 

Single tickets are bought directly from the driver (it would be greatly appreciated if you were to have exact change to enact payment). A single ticket is valid for 2 hours from the time of purchase for all transfers and costs  around €1.50/ €2.00 (in the summer season, from mid-June to mid-October).

Season bus tickets 

If you plan to travel and explore the Maltese Islands extensively, the most cost-effective solution is the season tickets (long-term). They take the form of plastic cards  and can be bought in almost every grocery/souvenir shop or at Malta Public Transport information points. There are 3 types to choose from:

  • Tallinja 12 journeys – valid for 12 trips – for €15

  • Tallinja Explore – valid for 7 days from validation for an unlimited number of journeys – for around €21

  • Tallinja Explore Plus Meep – valid for 7 days from the time of validation for an unlimited number of trips, including the use of/discounts at many additional services (details on the Malta Public Transport website) – at around €39

Bolt app in Malta
If you care about the duration of your journeys and the comfort of your transfer, we recommend using the Bolt phone application. Uber does not operate in Malta, however, Bolt allows you to order a direct private or shared transfer from any location.
