After it was announced that applications for Tallinja bus cards would be made free until the end of February, it was revealed that 10,000 took advantage of the scheme and applied.

Transport Minister Chris Bonett announced the milestone on social media, saying as of the week of the announcement, that of January 22nd, over 10,000 cards were applied for. 

Transport Malta had revealed that the application fee was made free until the end of the second month of the year, but bus fares for non-card users were raised. 

Non-card users will have prices raised from €2 to €2.50, with the 7 day bus card for kids reduced to €7 from €15. Meanwhile, the same 7 day card for adults will increase from €21 to €25. 

This comes after the government announced complimentary ferry services at the Grand harbour as they expect an increase in maritime transport.
