The tallinja app will continue improving your experience of the public transport service. You can use this app to locate your closest bus stop. You can also view which bus routes serve your closest stop and get to know the estimated time of arrival of buses arriving at your closest stop within the next 30 minutes.

The tallinja app makes use of GPS technology where every bus transmits its current location to the central system. The system then compares the location to where the bus is planned to arrive and estimates that time of arrival on each of the 2,000 bus stops around Malta and Gozo.

The app gives tallinja cardholders additional benefits. With a simple online registration process, tallinja cardholders may check their card balance, top-up their card and even see their actual bus trips and transaction history.

Planning a journey by bus is also easier with this app. All bus stops are identifiable on a map, and by clicking on any one of these bus stops, you can plan your journey with ease.
