Public transport in Tallinn
TRAM and BUS LINES
Public transport in Tallinn consists of a wide system of tram and bus lines that connects the main city points from 6 o’clock in the morning up to midnight. Central Bus Station is located at the bottom of Viru Shopping Center, quite near to Old Town.
Timetables and information are available at: www.tallinn.ee.
Tickets can be bought in newspaper kiosks or directly on board. Through Tallinn Card it is possible to travel on all public means of transport. Some bus lines cover suburban routes, thus enabling to reach the most interesting places near Tallinn.
Tourists also have the possibility of visiting the city through Tallinn City Tour double-decker buses that are available only during the summer period (from May to October). There are different lines depending on different destinations.

In comparison with the number of inhabitants and tourists taxi car service is really good. It is not difficult to find a taxi in Tallinn and fares are cheap in comparison with Italian ones. This also depends on the city size which is not so wide. During the night fares are slightly expensive. There are different taxis areas, especially in Old Town. It is also possible to stop them through a hand gesture, if they are available.
A good idea - even though only in the summer period – is to rent bicycles, that are particularly suitable for excursion outside Old Town.
