Bus Transport in Malta
For those who do not want to rent a car, I have good news. Due to the size of Malta (246 km2) is any place on the island accessible by local regular services. Towns and villages across to Malta’s capital Valletta Networked lines. Buses are the only form of public transport and were also a tourist attraction on the pas. Tthey were in fact now somewhat archaic shape, sharp yellow color and were not in the best condition. But they are quite reliably nowadays, moder buses, and I got almost everywhere on the island with the bus . In the fact that the buses are not running on time always, as punctuality and accuracy is not among the best features of Maltese. If the bus is coming, you have to wave with your hand, it is a sign for the bus driver to stop. Buses run from 6AM to 22 PM, then ride has just lines on a main thoroughfare. One way ticket cost 2 EUR, and you can use it for 2 hours. Another option is to buy a one week card. 7 days you can use unlimited the buses trough Malta for only 21 EUR.
