We need a culture change – Public Transport GM

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Malta Public Transport General Manager Konrad Pule said at the Newsbook Business Breakfast that people need to start distinguishing the best transportation mode for their destination since a decrease in commuting time will help reduce pressure on the traffic system. Mr Pule said that space in roads needs to be used better: parking lanes may alternatively be used for cycling  and etransport. Perhaps it is parking which should go underground, said Mr Pule. 

The Public Transport GM said that while the service may be given for free, planning is required so that an intermodal approach can help the commuters arrive to their destination on time and comfortably. To this end he said that nothing should be off the discussion table: from metro, to public transport, cars bicycles and more. He stressed that this is a cultural change which needs to be inculcated in the community.
