Tallinn Extends Free Public Transport Law to Trains ({{commentsTotal}})


Rewarding its voter base and rubbing in election defeat for opponents, the Center Party has followed through on a pledge to extend Tallinn's free public transport law to commuter trains, effective Monday.

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 same green public transport cards that the city issued at the start of this year, when a controversial move made Tallinn buses and streetcars free, will be used for train rides.

Passengers traveling beyond city limits will be compensated only for the portion of their trip that is in Tallinn.

The city council passed the resolution at the beginning of October.
