Tallinn extends free public transport to commuter trains


The citizens of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, present their green card to ride free on the city's trams, trolley buses, buses - and now trains, for easy, congestion-free mobility.

Baltic Business News, 23.10.2013

Tallinn's free public transport law has been extended to commuter trains from this week.

The City of Tallinn and Elron, the nationally owned train company, have signed an agreement waiving train tickets for trips within Tallinn for passengers who are residents of the city.

The city will pay Elron compensation for loss of ticket income.

The same green public transport cards that the city issued at the start of this year will be used for train rides.
