The Tallinja On Demand service area now includes Mrieħel, Birkirkara and Sliema


Malta Public Transport’s Tallinja On Demand service will now also operate on 20 new bus stops in Mrieħel, Birkirkara, Sliema and other surrounding localities, with effect from tomorrow 26th April 2022, the company announced. 

“We are changing the service area to improve connectivity around the Maltese islands. This follows extensive market research into travel patterns, discussions with the Mrieħel Business community, and a successful pilot project on demand-responsive public transport,” explained David Alvarez, Operations Director at Malta Public Transport.

Tallinja On Demand is a demand-responsive public transport service that allows passengers to book a bus seat using the Tallinja App. Passengers are able to choose the bus stops in which they would like to be picked up and dropped off, whether it is a trip they would like to make on the day or a future one. 

The service will operate in the areas around Pembroke, St. Julian’s, Swieqi, San Ġwann, Sliema, Ta’ Xbiex, Msida, Mrieħel and Birkirkara, on a limited number of bus stops in order to offer passengers a shorter journey time. Mater Dei Hospital and the University of Malta will continue to be served by the Tallinja On Demand service. Since Valletta and Floriana are very well connected to localities all over Malta through the regular bus routes, the Tallinja On Demand service will no longer operate in this area. 

Tallinja On Demand is available at a rate of only €2.50 for one passenger, while additional passengers will only need to pay €1 per passenger.
