Arriva Malta wants its bendy buses back on the roads after confirming that safety tests on bendy buses were successfully completed over the weekend.
In a statement, the public transport service provider said two buses, including one involved in a fire, were tested.
These buses, it said, were tested to extreme conditions over a constant 36 hour period in accordance with the detailed plan presented to Transport Malta last week.
"The tests have been concluded as a resounding success and an independent body has also certified that the plans have been concluded correctly on the buses," Mark Bowd, Managing Director for Arriva Malta said.
Arriva Malta will present the certificates to Transport Malta to permit these buses to return to service and works will commence on the remaining bendy fleet.
The company however failed to explain what had caused a number of its bendy buses to catch fire.
