Valletta Transport


Getting around Malta is relatively easy. Buses operate across the island and are reasonably priced. Routes link most resorts and larger villages with popular tourist attractions. Taxis are also popular for getting around; they are not normally metered with fares based on a fixed rate. It's best to discuss the fare with the driver before getting in the vehicle. Water taxis also run services between the main towns, and are a quick and relatively cheap means of transport. Car rental is available on Malta and is a viable and cost-effective option for getting around the island. Road signs are in English, although parking can sometimes be a problem. It's also possible to rent a chauffeur-driven vehicle. Renting a bicycle or scooter is also an option for, although not always the safest due to poor road and driving conditions.

Within Valletta there are two main bus routes, Route 98 which runs clockwise and 198 which runs the other way. There are also quaint horse carts (karozzin), but make sure to haggle over the price.
