On the Buses - travel Malta in style

Malta bus headlights

Assocjazzjoni Trasport Pubbliku or the Public Transport Association runs a number of bus routes around Malta.

There are more than 500 buses on the island working the established public routes, carrying children to and from school, and even doing special night runs from the popular night spots.

All the buses carry the same livery - yellow body, white top, with an orange slash separating the upper and lower colours. These colours are a fairly recent inovation - prior to 1973 the colour scheme varied according to the bus route.

All aboard for a trip around Malta on a classic bus
