Electric mini cabs
The Electric Mini Cabs service was introduced in Malta and Gozo in 2011. They are mainly seen operating in and around Valletta, and from the Malta Seaport Terminal.
Electric Mini Cabs operate in a similiar way to taxis and may be hired out through the following methods:
- By hailing at places where it is safe to stop;
- At Electric Mini Cab Stands;
- Pre-booking by phone, email, internet, etc
Trips with Electric Mini Cabs cannot cost more than 5.00 per trip, irrespective of the number of passengers. Typically, Electric Mini Cabs carry up to 3 passengers in addition to the driver.
