Some of the ideas floated by the Transport Ministry during a recent meeting with student representatives included free cab rides for students who travel in groups, shutting the university's ring road to cars during morning rush hour, and doubling the stipend of stu- dents who carpool. Sources close to government said the focus on the universi- ty area is only one aspect in a wider reform to tackle traffic congestion nationwide. The university at Tal-Qroqq hosts more than 10,000 stu- dents and lecturers and sits next door to Malta's only gen- eral hospital, Mater Dei, and the San Gwann industrial es- tate. This makes the area an important traffic node for peo- ple hailing from all corners of the island. Transport Minister Aaron Farrugia, a representative from the Education Ministry and a representative from fitness community platform Bul- letproof held a consultation meeting with the University Student Council (KSU) recently.
