Why Tallinja Bike?

Tallinja Bike is a bike-sharing system which operates in Valletta and nearby surroundings.

Bike-sharing is an alternative mode of transport which allows individuals to borrow a bike from a docking station and return it to another docking station belonging to the same system.

Tallinja Bike is ideal for tourists who wish to explore the city, as well as daily commuters travelling to Valletta, since docking stations are available at strategic points around the city, offering connections from the bus terminal and the two ferry terminals on either side of the city. There are many benefits of using a Tallinja Bike:

Saving time

Tallinja Bike is faster than walking and if you are not keen on pedalling, the bike can easily be switched to electric mode to facilitate the rest of your journey. You can quickly grab a bike when you need one and conveniently drop it off at the next docking station when you are done.

Saving Money

You can rent a Tallinja Bike for only €3, and you can also get a discount with your Tallinja card. You are only charged when the bike is being used. When the Tallinja Bike is returned to a docking station, the charges stop.

Going Green

Using a bike as opposed to a car will prevent CO2 emissions from polluting the air further. It is a small initiative but every little bit helps!

Getting Exercise

Cycling – no matter how long the distance is, is beneficial for everyone. If you don’t have time during the day to get some exercise in, the Tallinja Bike could be your daily dose of wellbeing. Let us not forget that exercise also reduces stress, which could be a great thing before work in the morning.

Having Fun

Why not add some fun to your day? Riding a bike might be the new thing for you.

There are 6 docking stations located in the prime areas of Valletta, which are also in proximity of historic landmarks, museums, cafés and restaurants. Two of the docking stations are located next to the Valletta Ferry terminals, providing an easy connection to other parts of the island.
