Route Information

There are a total of 80 different routes that link the different localities in Malta to either major hubs such as Valletta, Mater Dei Hospital and the Airport or to other destinations. Meanwhile 15 different routes operate in Gozo primarily from the central hub of Victoria Bus Station to various localities on the island. Generally, one or two digit routes (Eg. 1, 2, 3, … 12… 34… 94) denote mainline routes that operate to and from Valletta from various localities.

Express routes are designated with an “X”. These routes have limited stops and operate to and from the Airport from different localities.

Three digit routes link different localities together. In most cases these routes do not serve Valletta, but might serve other interchanges such as University and Mater Dei Hospital.
