Public transport

Buses, trolleys and trams operate regularly from 06.00–23.00.

Bus, trolley and tram tickets can be purchased at newsstands or from the driver. Make sure that you either have a valid ticket before getting on public transportion or that you buy one from the driver immediately upon entering. If you need to buy a ticket, enter at the front door; tickets are only sold at stops, not while the vehicle is moving. Note that tickets bought from the driver are more expensive than those bought at a newsstand. The Tallinn Card holders may use unlimited public transportation for free.

Punch your ticket right after entering at a machine located throughout the bus, trolley or tram. Note that you must punch your ticket immediately upon entering.

Passengers travelling with false tickets or without tickets will be fined.


Taxis can be hailed on the street or ordered by phone. Taxi stands are located at major intersections and in front of bigger hotels.
