What is Cool?
We are the first on-demand ride-pooling service in Malta, offering passengers the chance to share their ride with fellow travellers heading in the same direction. Simply choose when and where you want to be picked up, tell us where you’re going, and we’ll get you booked into a shared vehicle! Not only does this save you money, but it also helps save the environment!
We offer a corner-to-corner service, meaning that we’ll pick you up from a nearby corner and drop you off at another one at your chosen location. This saves time in pickups and drop-offs, ensuring that trip times are comparable to those of standard cabs, even when sharing with multiple passengers.
Download our Cool ride-pooling app and book your rides easily on your iPhone or Android smart device.
Why choose Cool?
Travel within a zone enclosing the Sliema, St.Julian’s, Valletta, Rabat, Zebbug and Paola for €4.95 per ride.
Our advanced algorithms ensure that detours are minimised and your ride times are reduced as much as possible, even when sharing with multiple passengers.
Go to the Airport
For an additional €2.50 per booking, we also go to and from the airport. Just remember, it's a shared ride, so we ask everyone to bring a single piece of luggage of a reasonable size. If you require guaranteed luggage space, we suggest booking an additional seat.
All our drivers must pass background checks and driving tests. If they fail, they’re not allowed to drive for us.
How it works?
Book Your First Ride
Choose your starting location and destination. Once you complete the booking, the app will select your closest pick-up point and guide you to it with its in-built map feature. The pick-up point will usually be the closest street corner, just a few hundred meters away from you.
It’s also possible to book a pick-up for multiple passengers. In this case, the price of each additional guest is 50% of the price of an individual ticket.
Meet Your Driver
Our drivers will typically arrive within a few minutes, so make sure you’re at the designated pick-up location when your ride arrives.
Be at your pick-up on time, because drivers are instructed to wait for only 90 seconds. To help make sure you don’t miss your vehicle, our app gives you a countdown for its arrival. We’ll also send a couple of notification texts, first when the driver’s two minutes away and then again when your ride arrives.
