Since the public transport is free for all, there is no need to come to get your personal identification number from our service halls just for being eligible, as a resident, for free public transport. By this, we can have less people together in the service halls of the city.
In the present emergency
situation, Mayor Mihhail Kõlvart decided that the purchase of
public transport tickets in Tallinn is not required and that
the municipal police does not perform ticket
With implementing this
measure, the city wants to reduce the number of possible close
contacts - both when buying a ticket from a bus driver and
while checking the ticket by a municipal police officer.
However, the city recommends that you carefully consider the
necessity of going out and, whenever possible, use your own
means of transport and prefer e-services whenever
Currently, Tallinn is not planning to reduce public transport
services as this could lead to people being too close to each
other in the case of crowded buses or trams.
“In order to provide crucial services, people must continue to
be able to reach their work space, not all work can be done
remotely. Thus, public transport will continue to operate
according to the present schedule, but we are monitoring the
situation and ready to make changes if the situation requires,”
the mayor stated.
