Abstract: Malta is an island state with an area of just 316km2 with a population of 417,432 (NSO, 2014a). Malta developed economically at a stable rate of increase since the early 90s. This economic growth has also reflected on its demographic and land use patterns. Population growth has slowed down in the last two decades mostly because of a fall in the birth rate. Mobility patterns of the population have changed significantly. Since the early 90s, Malta experienced a rapid growth in motorization and a decline in public transport use and in active mobility (walking and cycling). This is most evident in the national modal split.
