You can travel to all towns and villages in Malta by public bus. Buses run every 20 minutes from each station. The buses run between 5 a.m. and 12 p.m.
If you type in the location on Google maps where you need to go, you will see which line you need and where the bus departs from, just like in the Netherlands and Belgium. You can also download the Tallinja app. This is the app for buses in Malta and clearly shows you where the bus stops are and which line is best to take.
The prices of bus tickets are between 1.50 and 2 euros (3 euros for night buses). At some bus stations, you can also buy a 'Tallinja Explore' card, with which you can travel unlimited wherever you want for 21 euros for seven days. There is also a 12-ride card for sale, and it will cost you 15 euros, and with this, you can also travel all over the country. You can find more information about where to buy tickets on the Tallinja website.
If you prefer to take a taxi, you can download the apps such as Bolt, Uber or Ecabs. These apps are very popular in Malta, so you can usually have a taxi at your doorstep within 5 minutes. All you need to do is open the app, type in the address of where you want to go, and pay via cash or card that you link to your app. Taxis are also very cheap. With 35 euros, you can go from one side of the island to the other.
Electric scooters are very popular in Malta, and hundreds of them are dotted around the Island. They are a very affordable and highly convenient way of getting around the Island.
