On 29 November when Reidi tee opens for traffic the new bus line number 66 between Priisle and Pelguranna will be launched to transport passengers between Lasnamäe and Northern Tallinn via Reidi tee.
Deputy Mayor Andrei Novikov noted that the long-awaited direct
public transport line between Lasnamäe and Northern Tallinn is
finally available. “We gave some serious consideration to
various alternative routes for the new bus line, including
streets like Kotzebue, Telliskivi and Kalaranna. However, in
the end we opted for the solution that provides a direct
connection between Northern Tallinn and the most distant area
in Lasnamäe to allow diverting passenger flows away from the
centre. Traffic analysis conducted by the Tallinn University of
Technology supported the necessity of this route,” said
Novikov. “And the new bus line includes a section of Punane
tänav that previously had no public transport available, and
improves the connection between Punane tänav and Smuuli tee.
Further, this allows citizens to travel directly between
Lasnamäe and the port area, Balti jaam, and Pelgulinn.”
A new bus stop will be added on Punane tänav for both
directions - Taevapuna. Reidi tee will have new bus stops
called Reidi tee, Pikksilma and Uus-Sadama. Pelguranna tänav
will accommodate stop Supelranna and Kolde puiestee will
accommodate stop Helme. Line No. 66 will feature low-floor
buses with three access points. The buses will run daily
between 6:00 and 24:00. The average interval is 15 minutes
during the rush hour and 20-23 minutes during other hours.
