Press Release 17 MARCH 2020:

Last night, Transport Malta and Malta Public Transport fumigated all buses used in service throughout the day. This process will henceforth be repeated every night.

Throughout the process, the operator, donning protective clothing sprayed disinfecting chemicals to eliminate any possible trace of the COVID-19 virus. Following the fumigation, personnel carried out the usual cleaning regime, under the supervision of the department for public cleansing.

The fumigation occurred in the various bus bases around Malta, namely in the Park and Ride of Floriana and Marsa, in Ċirkewwa and in Rabat, Gozo.

Besides the fumigation of buses, personnel will also deeply clean bus terminals to help minimise the risk of virus transmission. The Valletta terminal, Marsa Park and Ride, Pembroke Park and Ride, Buġibba Terminal, Ċirkewwa Terminal, Mater Dei, Bombi, Junior College, Sliema Marina, Victoria Terminal and Imġarr harbour in Gozo will be rigorously cleaned.

We strongly encourage the public to abide by the guidelines Transport Malta and Malta Public Transport issued for the use of public transport.
