Commuting to and from the university has become way easier thanks to a new e-bike station set up by Malta Public Transport on campus.
The Tallinja Bike system will hopefully help with UoM’s notorious parking issue as it allows students to rent a bike from Valletta and travel to university and vice versa.
“Parking has become a persistent issue at university, but the easy-to-use Tallinja Bike system offers a convenient and affordable solution for students,” Malta Public Transport said in a statement.
Although still in its preliminary stages, the new station is the first outside the Valletta zone and connects to other stations currently located at the Valletta Terminus, the Barrakka Lift, Valletta Waterfront, Fort St Elmo, Marsamxett Ferry Terminal and the Floriana Park & Ride.
“Users set up a one-time registration at the station itself and they may then unlock a bike and dock it back when they reach their destination.”
To encourage students to use the new e-bike system, Malta Public Transport is offering 50% discounts to students paying for the service with their Tallinja Card.
