New bus routes to be published today, expression of interest this week
The new public transport routes will be published today while an expression of interest for a new public transport operator should be issued by Saturday, Transport Minister, Joe Mizzi, said this morning.
The Minister, who was talking on One Radio, acknowledged that the expression of interest was few days behind schedule due to legal changes that were required to the document before it could be issued. The routes will be published online on the Transport Malta website.
Mr Mizzi said that he was informed that various companies were interested in the public transport service, including Scottish and Irish companies together with a local consortium.
McGill Buses has already shown an interest in the Maltese public transport system.
