Malta Public Transport offers improved benefits for bus drivers in continuous recruitment drive

Malta Public Transport, the company operating the bus service in Malta, is introducing more incentives and flexibility in the remuneration package for its bus drivers, designed to attract and retain seasoned professionals. The company is also offering attractive benefits to those who would like to embark on a career in bus driving, providing full training on the job.

Depending on experience, bus drivers can earn between €22,000 and €27,000 annually, excluding overtime. This package includes various bonuses and allowances, such as a Sunday premium, a weekly allowance, a company bonus and a performance bonus. The company also offers overtime opportunities through specific rosters for those who would like to further supplement their income.

Malta Public Transport values the expertise of former bus drivers, and therefore their years of service with the company are being considered when determining their starting income. This initiative ensures that experienced professionals are recognised and compensated accordingly.

New recruits will enjoy a starting income of €22,000 per annum. This starting income is standard for all those joining the company with no bus driving experience. Individuals possessing a B licence but not a D licence are encouraged to apply since full training will be provided by the company.
In addition to competitive salaries, all Malta Public Transport bus drivers enjoy the same conditions and benefits, such as free health insurance. The company is dedicated to providing opportunities for career progression, further demonstrating its commitment to supporting the professional growth of its experienced workforce.

To further acknowledge the contributions of bus drivers, Malta Public Transport hosts driver awards every three months, presenting vouchers as tokens of appreciation for those who deliver outstanding performance. Additionally, the company actively encourages driver participation in focus groups to ensure that their concerns and suggestions are prioritised and addressed.

In addition to these benefits, Malta Public Transport offers various other perks to enhance the well-being and satisfaction of its employees. These include family events, sports events, and other social activities. These initiatives aim to foster a sense of community among employees, further enhancing the overall work experience at Malta Public Transport.

Malta Public Transport remains committed to providing a supportive and inclusive work environment where experienced bus drivers are valued and empowered to thrive.
