The University of Malta, together with Transport Malta, the Valletta Local Council and the Ministry for Tourism will be participating in the CIVITAS DESTINATIONS Project. This project aims to implement sustainable mobility measures and actions with the view to offering intelligent sustainable transport solutions for tourists and residents alike through innovation and cooperation with all major stakeholders. The project brings together Funchal (Portugal), Las Palmas (Spain), Elba (Italy), Rhetymno (Greece), Limassol (Cyprus) and Malta who together will work towards finding solutions to common problems.  Four follower cities from China will be following closely the measures implemented in the demonstration sites and learn from experiences gained.

In Malta, the project is focused on the Southern Harbour and Northern Harbour districts termed as the Valletta Region. the region endures a high number of mobility demand, which – particularly in recent years – is putting a high strain on the local transport infrastructure resulting in high traffic congestion and journey delays.  In order to mitigate these negative externalities, a number of initiatives, which have yet been untested in Malta shall be implemented in order to assess their success in the local context and thus form the basis for future transport policy development.


Measures to be implemented in Malta

  • A sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMP) shall be compiled for Valletta and its surrounding region
  • ​Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan Award​​​
  • Promoting e-bike sharing and car sharing
  • Last Mile delivery of goods
  • Green Mobility Hotel Award
  • Curbing High Polluting vehicles from the road
  • Promoting sustainable mobility among tourists
  • Smart parking management system for Valletta
  • Further integrate ferries into the Public Transport network​ 

The DESTINATIONS EU Project is funded under the Horizon 2020 CIVITAS Funding Programme.
