The minivan will take a circular route, starting from the main gate of Manoel Island proceeding down to the bridge, from where it will pick up commuters and drive them to their preferred swimming spots on the north and east shore of the island. The designated swimming zones are currently being embellished by MIDI to make them more accessible to the public.

“The provision of this shuttle service forms part of our commitment to provide better access to the swimming zones on Manoel Island to the local community. Following last year’s success, we have once again collaborated with the Manoel Island Foundation to offer this service which is greatly appreciated by the local community,” commented MIDI CEO, Mark Portelli.  

Gzira Mayor, Conrad Borg Manche thanked MIDI for its collaboration to provide this essential service which is used by both young and elderly Gzira residents as well as the general public. He said that this initiative follows on the success of the Manoel Island Guardianship Agreement, which has paved the way for further collaboration with MIDI.
