Busses in Malta are Yellow with an orange central stripe. The Bus Service on Malta offers an extremely cheap and efficient way of touring around. The only drawback is that all busses start and end up in Valletta. ie. to get to any other town you may need to get to Valletta first, then take another to another town.
