Public transport route changes announced

 - Monday, 06 May 2013, 12:23

Transport Malta advises the general public that as part of the ongoing scheduled public transport route improvements, and following discussions with the respective local councils, a number of modifications to the existing network will come into effect as of 26 May. 

The changes are as follows: 

Route 13 – Extension of existing route (Pembroke, St. Julian’s, Sliema to Valletta)

This route is being extended in Pembroke in Triq Professur Ganado towards the hotels and past the Institute of Tourism Studies. This modification in the route provides additional services to the hotels in the area.

Route 21 – Slight Modification to existing route (Sliema, Gzira to Valletta)

In order to improve the efficiency of Route 21, a slight modification to the route is being implemented whereby the route passes through Rue D’Argens instead of Triq Testaferrata, on its way to Sliema.

Route 106 – Modification to route (MDH, University, Lija, Balzan, Attard, Ta’ Qali)

This route is being modified to include a direct service from Warda Interchange in Triq l-Imdina, Attard to Mater Dei Hospital and University. This route will no longer be serving Triq il-Pitkali in Attard and Ta’Qali since these areas are already being served with a half hourly service provided by routes 202 and 203.

Route 82 – Extension to existing route (Birzebbuga to Valletta)

This route is being extended slightly to include the Freeport roundabout before continuing with its journey to serve the area of Tal-Papa in B’Bugia.

Route 124 – Extension to existing route – Birgu, Bormla, Zabbar, Marsascala

Route is being extended to include Isla whereby with this change this locality will have a direct hourly connection to Zabbar and Marsascala

Route 237 – New route (Paradise Bay, Ghadira Bay, Anchor Bay)

This is a new route connecting Paradise Bay, Ghadira Bay and Popeye Village with (Anchor’s Bay) with an hourly service between 0900hrs and 1700hrs daily for the Summer period.

most of the routes seem to be being extended rather than shortened and being more direct which i believe was the main problem...

This is a very good start but what about doing away with the two tier fare system? We want tourists and yet we treat them with disrespect them by charging them a higher fare on Public Transportation. Why is that? I wonder who the genius was to come up with such a bad idea? We should make them feel welcome and not treated like outsiders. Besides the driver should be concentrating on his driving and not policing the public. Transport Malta somehow you always manage to screw up a good thing. Why is that? I hope this changes with the new CEO?????
