Collaboration to increase police presence on public transport


Malta Public Transport and the Malta Police Force signed a collaboration agreement with the aim to improve public safety and security on public transport through an increase of police presence. This collaboration will allow all police officers to travel for free on all route buses by using their Tallinja Card.

“Through this initiative, we are not only facilitating an increase of police presence on our buses, but also offering incentives that strengthen the use of public transport as an environmentally friendly means of travel,” explained Konrad Pulé, General Manager at Malta Public Transport. “We are continuously striving to reduce environmental impact and to create an environment which is healthier, more efficient, and less polluted. Such collaborations not only help bus passengers directly, but also help the community by reducing traffic congestion.”  

“The Malta Police and the Malta Public Transport share a common foundation at the service of the public,” said Police Commissioner Angelo Gafà. “This formal collaboration is the first of its kind and will continue to strengthen the excellent relationship with the aim of improving our service to the public.”

With focused police presence and surveillance in areas with heavy bus usage, enforcement and crime prevention will be improved through this collaboration, while also increasing the level of safety for both bus passengers and Malta Public Transport employees.

This strategic collaboration also includes a commitment to raise awareness about road safety through collaborative awareness campaigns between Malta Public Transport and the Malta Police Force.
