Birth of a transport cooperative in Malta

KopTaCo was officially setup in 1997, as part of the Unscheduled Bus Service transport reform.  However, our history in transportation in Malta traces way back.  The small transport providers operators decided to form a cooperative.  In other words, they joined forces in order to provide a people transport service within the Maltese Islands through the use of coaches.  Hence the name KopTaCo, KOPerattiva TAl-COaches (Coaches Cooperative). First transportation alliance of its kind on the islands, it developed quickly, complimenting existing services.

Growing with our customers

Our customers’ needs continued to change and increase over time. For this reason, we expanded our services and vehicles to accommodate new customer requests. We also grew over the years to answer the expanding demand.  Members therefore started investing in minivans as well as chauffeur driven cars.  The transport needs and services provided grew vastly and diversified. As a result, KopTaCo now offers airport transfers, point-to-point transportation, dedicated services to cruise liners, schools and work groups transportation, vintage bus rental, as well as tours around the Islands on a daily basis.  KopTaCo has also had the privilege to serve a number of single and group VIPs such as the famous football teams of A.C. Milan and Parma F.C..

An ever-growing fleet

At present, KopTaCo operates over 30 motor coaches, 25 minivans and 15 chauffeur vehicles. We also make use of various other subcontractors which we trust to provide a good service.  Our fleet also offers wheelchair accessible vehicles, catering to special needs customers. Our vehicles range allows us to cater to your needs, whether you need a minibus or a 53-seater to organise your outing.

We are fortunate enough to have friendly full time and part time staff who manage the transportation of hundreds of passengers per day all over the Maltese Islands.  In order to provide an always improving scheduling service, KopTaCo is in the process of installing a tracking system to all of its vehicles.

Corporate & social responsibility

KopTaCo is also committed to the continuous upgrading of its fleet and is shifting to greener and more efficient vehicles.  Investing in more modern vehicles will also result in safer vehicles, with passengers transported in more comfortable vehicles having an increasing number of commodities.
