I am arriving to Malta in a few days. We would mostly use our feet and public buses.. Since we will be staying in Malta 3 nights (low budget holiday) we won't buy any other tickets but single tickets. But, on some website i read something i don't understand so i did copy/paste:
'Passengers may change buses within the two hour period to get to their destination as part of a one-way journey. The ticket does not allow you to make a return trip, even if wholly within the two hour period. Of course, penalty fares are payable if you travel without a valid ticket.'
So, as i understood it - i by a ticket on a bus from Sliema to Valetta, for example. I get to Valetta, finish my work in, lets say 20min and i can not use the ticket i bought to go back to Sliema???!!!! How does anyone know where am i heading? Maybe i am not going to Sliema in that way... Can someone explain this to me?
And other thing..how jammed is the traffic in Malta on Mondays early mornings? I will be staying in Sliema (near Exiles bus station) and have to be at the airport before 07:40am.. AS i could see on timetable which i don't understand well, X2 bus is some few minutes before 7:00am on Exiles station..how long does it take from there to the airport? Should i take a risk and use this bus at that time and reach the airport for half an hour?
Thanx for your answers..
