Malta Public Transport launches first electric bus

The Malta Public Transport launched its first 100% electric bus in a pilot project to study the possibility that such vehicles will form part of its fleet.

Konrad Pule from Malta Public Transport said that the small bus will not operate in the public transport official schedule, however it will be used in different routes including Valletta and Cottonera so that MPT and Transport Malta will understand better its operation and the response by commuters.

Transport Malta chairperson, Joe Bugeja, said that commuters using public transport increased by 11% last year compared with the previous year. This project, he added, is part of pro-environment initiatives and the efforts by the authority to address climate change.

Malta Public Transport management said that the fleet of 440 buses is one of the cleanest in Europe with type Euro 6 vehicles which have been on the road for less than five years.
