Buses in Malta are cheap, plentiful and fairly frequent, especially on main routes. They are generally good value for money (be sure to have change on you) and operate throughout an extensive network across the island.
Buses on normal routes are known as ‘route buses’ and are predominantly yellow and white. Vehicles display route numbers at the front and often at the rear as well, but do not show their destination.
It is possible to pay individually for each single journey, or alternatively buy a 1-day, 3-day, 5-day or 7-day ticket. There are three travel zones, with fares varying accordingly.
