EU acting against Malta on 'discriminatory' bus fares

The European Commission is to launch formal legal proceedings against Malta over Arriva’s “discriminatory” bus fares, The Sunday Times has learnt.

A letter of formal was sent to Malta last month asking the Government and Arriva to change the “discriminatory” bus fare system as it is currently infringing EU rules.

Since the Arriva service was launched, residents of Malta have been charged less than non-residents.

This system was lambasted by non-residents, insisting the system was discriminatory and did not comply with EU rules.

The Government insisted it was doing nothing wrong, since the difference was based on residence rather than nationality.

The EU executive is arguing, however, that the system infringes EU law and should be replaced.
