The changes are as follows:

  • A new route TD3 from Airport to Bugibba began operating this week.
  • Routes TD13 (Valletta – St Julian’s) and TD9 (Valletta – Buġibba) have been merged into one route from Valletta – Buġibba via St Julian’s as TD13 with a 20 minute frequency.
  • Route TD17 from the Pembroke P&R to University has been extended to Mater Dei Hospital

The fares for the Tallinja Direct routes are as follows: €3.00 if you are paying Cash on board the bus, €2.50 (or two trips) if you are paying with a 12-Journey Card, or €1.50 if you are paying with a personalised Tallinja Card. Personalised Tallinja Card holders are reminded that Tallinja Direct journeys do not contribute towards the automatic weekly or monthly capping.
