Late night rides! Malta Public Transport boosts frequency for effortless nighttime travel
The night routes are also covered by the Free Public Transport program.
In order to provide passengers with a more practical and effective travel solution, Malta Public Transport has announced a higher frequency on a number of Night Routes beginning 21st May 2023.
The frequency on the N13 Night Route has been greatly enhanced for people travelling between Valletta and St. Julian's during the night, with departures from either Valletta or St. Julian's occurring every 10 minutes between 23:10 and 00:10. On weekdays, the service will run at a frequency of every 20 minutes until 01:30 hrs., while on weekends, holidays, and Fridays, it will run until 02:10 hrs.
It will be a relief to passengers travelling between Sliema Ferries and Bugibba at night to learn that the N212 Night Route will now run every day rather than just on Fridays and Saturdays. Buses will operate every 30 minutes; the first bus from Bugibba to Sliema Ferries will depart at 23:50 and last until 01:20; the first bus from Sliema Ferries to Bugibba will depart at 23:10 and stay until 00:40.
The N11 Night Route, which connects Cirkewwa and St. Julian's during the night, will now run every 30 minutes on Fridays and Saturdays. Cirkewwa to St. Julian's departures will start at 23:05 and end at 02:05 (local time). The first departure from St. Julian's in the direction of Cirkewwa will leave at 00:55 and the final departure will leave at 03:05.
The Malta Public Transport also reminded the public that Night Routes, just like Day and Special Services, are covered by the Free Public Transport program. To benefit from free transport, passengers must possess a valid, personalised Tallinja Card and tap it against the ticket machine each time they board the bus. Without Tallinja Cards, passengers must buy their tickets at the bus stop.
