Air conditioning on public transport buses has been turned on again with immediate effect,following instructions from the authorities.
Malta Public Transport has taken a series of measures to ensure maximum safety, including refitting the air conditioning systems with upgraded inflow particulate filters, which will continue to undergo regular cleansing.
Additionally, the air ducts of air conditioners on every bus are being specially fumigated every night at the end of each shift.
Circulating air on the bus is being changed a minimum of eight times per hour during regular operation for the safety of everyone onboard. Internal air filtering purifies re-circulating air while external systems provide fresh air intake. Windows and hatches are being kept closed throughout journeys to maintain the right functioning of air conditioning.
Malta Public Transport reminds passengers to wear face masks at all times on the bus.
