The Minister for Transport Ian Borg announced the launch of a public consultation regarding the reform in the public service garage sector.

In a statement, the Ministry said that this spirit of positive change is also evident in the way road infrastructure is being implemented, with “several facilities for pedestrians and alternative means.” Borg stated that in the past years, Malta has seen substantial growth in chauffeur services, together with the use of temporary car rental services.

Minister Borg said that the Authority will be welcoming the public’s comments about this reform and is looking ahead to a high-quality policy for this sector.

“Our objective remains to continue improving the quality of life of the people,” concluded the Minister.
