Plan Ahead! Here’s all you need to know to get to Notte Bianca.

Here’s more information about extended public transport service and other logistical details.

With Notte Bianca just a two days away, we’re giving you all the details so that you can plan your night ahead. Less time in traffic means more time to watch your favourite artists perform while enjoying the plethora of activities during Notte Bianca.


Tal-Linja Service


It is anticipated that Valletta will be bustling with activity on Saturday 7th October, so we recommend that where possible, public transport is used instead of personal vehicles. Since public transport is free (on presentation of your Tal-Linja Card), it is the best option, and Transport Malta have facilitated the service further by extending their night routes especially for the event. While the full schedule can be accessed below, the latest updates on Tal-Linja services can be followed through the Public Transport website.
