Since these events will all be happening the same time, Festivals Malta have organised the performances within different routes so that audiences can easily find events which interest them most. This year’s routes are The Kids Route, The Alternative Route, The Classics Route, The Music Route, The Red Route, The Dance Route, and The Theatre Route. A map with all the routes and the events within them is available here: https://bit.ly/3CkwazR


With the large turnout synonymous with Notte Bianca, Valletta’s streets will be bustling with activity all through the night. In order to mitigate traffic congestions the general public is highly recommend to use Public Transport, which as of the 1st October will be free of charge. The Tal-Linja Card still needs to be presented upon boarding. Malta Public Transport will also be increasing public transportation frequency after 11pm, with special bus routes specifically created for Notte Bianca. You can find the special night routes schedule here: www.festivals.mt/post/be-prepared-for-notte-bianca


The ferry service from Sliema and Three Cities to and from Valletta will also be operating with extended hours until 2am.


Those who still want to travel with their personal vehicle should take note that access to Valletta will not be possible after 9:30am on Saturday. The general public can only access Valletta by car through the ringroad. However Transport Malta recommend that those traveling with their own vehicles, make use of the Park and Ride facilities since parking close to Valletta is very limited. Valletta residents will however have full access to the Capital City including parking upon presentation of their ID Card, with the exception of St Paul’s Street, which will not be accessible by anyone throughout Notte Bianca. Transport Malta officials will be available on site for traffic management.


Special arrangements have also been made for people with special needs. Those that have the blue badge can park in a dedicated parking area in South Street.
