You don’t have to worry about the costs, because bus tickets are really cheap. There are 3 ticket options: a single journey ticket, a 12-journey card or you can use your personalized Tallinja transport card. The Tallinja transport card is an intelligent contactless bus card designed to make it easy for you to use the bus. The card is personalized with your photo and name and can be charged with credit easily online, over the phone, at any of our sales outlets or at any MaltaPost post office.
Next to the Tallinja transport card, you can buy regular tickets. A single journey ticket differs in price depending on the season. Winter tickets are €1.50, summer tickets are €2 and when you travel at night the tickets are €3. With this ticket you can travel to any destination within 2 hours, including interchanging. Finally, you can get a 12-journey ticket for €15. This ticket can also be used for night buses, and it can be shared with others, your family for example.
When you want to travel around Valletta by car, your only option is taking a taxi, since traffic within Valletta is restricted. These taxis are all electric and are available from 10 points in the city to any destination you want. Taking a taxi, however, is more expensive than the bus. Taxis in Valletta have a start rate of €4 and charge you €2 per km.
If you insist on going to Valletta by car, the Park-And-Ride in Floriana is your best option. This is a parking space just outside the city, where you can park your car and go to Valletta with a shuttle bus available at the Park-And-Ride. It has over 750 parking spaces and it only costs €0.40 per day.
