Malta Public Transport have released a new app for mobile devices.
Free to download, the main feature of the app shows the number of minutes in which the next bus will be arriving at their stop. The Tallinja app makes use of GPS technology, every bus transmits its current location, the system compares the location to where the bus is planned to arrive and estimates the time of arrival on each of the 2000 bus stops around Malta and Gozo. Another service that may be very useful for holiday makers is the journey planner, allowing you to plan your journeys across Malta & Gozo with ease, as well as being able to top up your tallinja travel card.
The widely anticipated app was downloaded 10,000 times in 3 days confirming commuters thirst for such services and so far feedback has been very positive according to Konrad Pule, General Manager of Malta Public Transport.
