Minister for Gozo Clint Camilleri and Transport Minister Ian Borg this morning launched the new Bus Route X300 which will be a direct route linking Gozo to Malta.
Route X300 will depart Cirkewwa Terminal and will only stop at University, Mater Dei, Junior College and Valletta. Its scheduling times will be according to the Gozo Channel Schedule, thus decreasing the long commute for those Gozitans who cross over to Malta to study or for work purposes.
It is estimated that around 4,000 Gozitans currently work in Malta while more than 1,000 students are following their studies in institutions based in Malta.
Minister Ian Borg said that he is pleased that thanks to this route, the Ministries, Transport Malta and Malta Public Transport are making these people’s lives a tiny bit easier.
