  • The Public Transport on Malta is now operated by Arriva
  • It is an association of bus owners, usually the driver owns his own bus.
  • Although many of the buses are ancient with additional moden ones they provide a cheap and reliable service.. Most buses go to Malta's main bus station situated around the Triton fountain, out side Valletta's City Gate in Floriana.

If you want to do a lot of bus travelling you can buy a 1, 3, 5 or 7 day ticket, usable on all the buses except the night services.
