B’tal-linja għall-Istrina Malta Public Transport to donate ticket sales to l-Istrina


Following the success of last year’s event, Malta Public Transport announces that this year’s edition of “B’tal-linja għall-Istrina” will be held on Saturday 9th December 2017. Through this initiative, the Company will be donating the full ticket price paid by the passengers for their first trip of the day when using their personalised tallinja card or when buying a cash ticket on the bus. This means that people travelling by bus on the day will be helping to raise funds for charity.

“Our employees have always teamed up together to raise funds for those that are in need, and this year the company will be once again encouraging passengers to travel by bus for l-Istrina,” announced Konrad Pulé, General Manager at Malta Public Transport. “L-Istrina is a national event that brings us all together to support those that are in need and we are giving our passengers an opportunity to contribute to charity when taking the bus.”

The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation added: “we would like to thank Malta Public Transport for once again organising this initiative in aid of this year’s L-Istrina.”
The donation will be made according to the fares paid by holders of personalised tallinja cards and the number of cash tickets purchased on the bus. Passengers using the Adult, the Student and the Gozo tallinja cards pay €0.75c per trip, while holders of a Concession and a Child tallinja card pay €0.25c. All passengers may also choose to purchase cash tickets on the bus for €1.50c.
