Malta Public Transport

Emergency Credit

Customers are kindly reminded to top up their tallinja card regularly, so that they will not be caught without credit when they need to travel by bus.

As from 1 March 2017, all tallinja card holders will be entitled to 1 emergency trip on Malta Public Transport buses. This means that if customers do not have enough credit on their card, they will be allowed to travel once in credit.

If customers make use of the emergency trip, once they top up their tallinja card the fare for this trip will be deducted accordingly. Customers are informed that once the emergency credit is used, customers need to top up their tallinja card within seven calendar days, otherwise their card will be blacklisted.
