Park and Ride
Park and Ride is a free system that allows you to park your vehicle in a car park in the city’s outskirts and then use public transport to commute within the city. You don’t have to be a Tallinn resident to use Park and Ride.

Instructions on using the Park and Ride system
In order to use Park and Ride, you must have a personalised Smartcard (you have to add a 3 euro deposit to your card). You must validate your Smartcard before entering and leaving the car park as well as immediately after entering public transport. You can use your Smartcard to enable free ride for up to four of your co-passengers.
1. When entering the car park, validate your Smartcard to open the barrier.
2. Parking and use of public transport is FREE if you validate your journey on public transport with the Smartcard.
3. When exiting the car park, validate your Smartcard to open the barrier. Please vacate the parking spot before 3:59am
PS! You need a personalised Smartcard to use the free Park and Ride service. You should also add a 3 euro deposit on your Smartcard (to make a mobile payment, call 1322*603*Smartcard number).
If you do not validate your Smartcard in public transport or vacate the parking spot after 3:59am, the card deposit will not be reimbursed.
Using public transport with other people
The person using their Smartcard to enter the parking lot can use their card for up to four other passengers in public transport by using the arrow buttons on the validator. They can travel for free. To confirm the selection, press ‘OK’ on the validator.
The person who validated their Smartcard and their co-passengers must be travelling in the same public transport. Co-passengers do not need to validate their Smartcard separately.
Use the trip planner!
If you have lost your Smartcard or have a problem with validating your Smartcard, call 11800.
