40 new buses in Malta as route network is updated


Malta Public Transport announced the addition of 40 new buses, expanding the volume of trips by 66,000 every year. The €9 million investment increases the public transport fleet in Malta to 435, 250 of which are less than four years old.

Malta Public Transport Chairman Felipe Cosmen welcomed the government’s decision to upgrade the public transport network with new routes and frequencies which will be announced in the coming days.

“While mobility is evolving, public transport remains the most efficient and most eco-friendly way of moving large amounts of people,” said Mr Cosmen. “Over the past four years, we have invested in 211 new Euro 6 buses to upgrade the public transport fleet in Malta.”

The new buses vehicles provide clean and fully accessible transportation which Malta Public Transport is confident will play an important part in reducing the country’s collective carbon footprint.

“Malta is a special place for me and for our group of companies and I am proud of what we have achieved in the last four years,” said Mr Cosmen as he thanked MPT employees for their dedication and energy and customers for their loyalty.

Mr Cosmen explained that Malta Public Transport is able to maximise on the Group’s international experience in the transport industry and adapt it to the local needs in Malta, introducing different mobility alternatives.

“It is a very interesting time for mobility in general, but particularly here in Malta with its opportunities, factors and characteristics,” continued the Chairman, and said that this environment encourages Malta Public Transport to push for more innovation.
