Malta Buses "The End of an Era"

Description

The History of Buses in Malta begins in 1905 when the first vehicles were imported to run between Valletta and St. Andrew's. They began to dominate local transport in the1920s, eventually leading to the demise of both the Malta Tramways service in 1929 and the Malta Railway service in 1931, which together had been the mainstay of public transport since the turn of the century.

On 2 July 2011, Malta's iconic buses, reminiscent of another age, will be withdrawn form service and a new era of puplic transport will be heralded in. Over the years they have become synonymous with Malta and will always be fondly remembered by locals and turists alike.

This set of 20 stamps marks this event and depicts vehicles that were in operation over the years.
