Apply for your Tallinja Card
Malta’s answer to the Oyster in London (and many more similar schemes I’m sure) gets you two hours’ worth of bus travel for €0.75, half the usual fare of €1.50, and is pay as you go. Every time you board the bus simply touch the reader on the bus with your tallinja card. A fare for every journey of 75c will be deducted automatically from your credit up to a maximum limit of €26 every month (Night Services excluded).
It needs to be applied for with a passport-style photograph and a Maltese address – click here to apply. We received our cards approximately two weeks after applying for them with no hassle but others have needed to chase – see Malta Public Transport contact details.
