Malta Public Transport carried its 50 millionth passenger on Thursday, marking an important milestone in mobility in Malta.
“Fifty million passengers in one year is an impressive achievement for our operation in Malta. Our strategy has always been to take advantage of our international experience and adapt it to the local context, and we are very proud that we have achieved these positive results” said Konrad Pule, General Manager of Malta Public Transport.
This has been another record year for public transport in Malta, with the numbers projected to exceed 52 million by the end of the year. These numbers mean that Malta Public Transport registered a 30 percent increase in passengers since 2015, the first year of operation. This increase in passengers can be felt across various groups of passengers including locals and visitors alike.
The 50 millionth passenger was surprised with a fantastic trip for two to Spain as well a year of free travel with Malta Public Transport and was met at the Valletta Terminus by Malta Public Transport General Manager Konrad Pule who presented her with the gift.
“I thank Malta Public Transport for this pleasant surprise but, even more, for the convenient service that it offers,” said the lucky passenger.
“A big thanks goes out to all our employees as this success would have not been possible without their dedication and commitment”, explained Mr Pule. “I would also like to thank all our customers, and I assure them that we will continue working hard to improve our service even further.”
