Transport Malta’s Sustainable Mobility Initiatives

. 5,549 people have already benefited so far in 2023 from Transport Malta Grants
• €23.2 million of the €28.4 million allocated have already been used

Initiatives aimed at improving the transport system in our country are being well received by the public. In 2022, Transport Malta has invested more than 27.5 million in incentives for better transport and this is clearly showing the Government’s commitment to promote alternative options for sustainable transport. Initiatives like these encourage the public to invest more in electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles and this leads to a reduction in emissions.
By the end of August 2023, there were a total of 7,362 electric vehicles and 3,738 plug-in hybrid vehicles. This significant increase in numbers and shows that such grants are being well received by the public. The Government continued to invest in favour of sustainable mobility and increased the investment to €28.4 million; €15 million from the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) and €13.4 million from national funds.
It is worth noting that this year, the government has further bolstered its commitment to sustainable mobility by increasing the investment to €28.4 million. This increase, consisting of €15 million from the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) and €13.4 million from national funds, reflects a resounding dedication to fostering a cleaner and more efficient transport infrastructure for the benefit of all citizens. Transport Malta applauds these efforts and looks forward to continued progress in the quest for a greener and more sustainable transportation future.
Below one can see the difference in take-up and expenditure between 2022 and 2023.
