Qawra to Paceville - bus or taxi?

Hi All

This is our first time to Malta and we are staying in the Qawra area. I want to visit a friend’s bar in Paceville (on St Georges Road). On checking the Arriva bus routes it looks like I will have to get three buses with a journey time of around 1 hour and 20 minutes which seems a bit crazy for what is a relatively short journey. Would catching a taxi be a better alternative and what would the fare be?

Many thanks for any help.


P.S This could be the first of a few questions on Malta LOL.

I'm fairly sure the number 12 would get you there in one go, try entering 12 as a route on the Arriva Malta website and have a look at the map.

Swifty137 is correct.

The number 12 bus will take you from the Qawra bus station to to St Julians on it`s way to Sliema.

It will take about 30 minutes .

It is worth buying a seven day ticket for only 12.00 euros which gives unlimited bus travel up to 23.00 hours for a full week.

Hi finkfloydman,

Swifty137 is right, a number 12 is the only bus that goes from Qawra to Paceville which runs every 12 mins. The last No12 back from Paceville is 23.23. If you are planning to return late or in the early hours from Paceville, you can catch the N11 night bus which runs at:

00.05 - 01.05 - 02.05 and the last one at 03.05.

Have a good holiday.
