Public transport tickets for city visitors and groups

NB! Due to the spread of COVID-19, passengers are not allowed to enter buses and trolleybuses from the front door, and a sanitary zone will be created to protect drivers extending from the front door to the first row of seats.

A valid ticket grants the right to use the Tallinn public transport system. The same tickets can be used for trams, trolleybuses, and city buses (numbers 1–73).

Tickets purchased from a driver

Due to the spread of COVID-19, bus, tram, and trolleybus drivers in Tallinn will no longer personally sell tickets as of 12 March. 

QR tickets

A QR ticket is a machine-readable transport system ticket with a validity period of one hour that is either displayed on the screen of a mobile device or printed out. A QR ticket can be purchased either on the website tallinn.pilet.ee or with a mobile app.  A QR ticket with a validated code grants the holder the right to ride. 
  • A QR ticket costs €1.50.
  • A QR ticket can be used to purchase up to 10 tickets per code. 
  • An unused QR ticket is valid for one year starting from the moment it is purchased.
  • A QR ticket can be validated at an a square, orange validator next to the first door of a vehicle.

Public Transport Card

Tourists can also purchase a Public Transport Card that is not personalised.

With the money deposited on the card, tickets can be purchased for up to six persons at a time. In order to do so, deposit money onto the card at a point of sale and swipe the card in front of the orange validator when entering a transport vehicle; this will automatically deduct a one-hour ticket from the card. If the card is used to buy tickets for multiple people, swipe the card, increase the number of passengers (up to five) with the arrow on the validator screen, press OK, and swipe the card in front of the validator one more time. 

Tallinn Card

Tallinn Card holders have the right to use the public transport system free of charge for the entire validity period of their card. When entering a vehicle, swipe the Tallinn Card in front of the orange validator to validate the ride.


NB! Tallinn Airport now has self-service machines where you can purchase public transport tickets.

Free public transport for participants of international events

Although Tallinn is a compact city in which you can easily walk to most destinations, the city offers organisers of international events (conferences, cultural and sports events) the chance to apply for the right to use public transport free of charge for the participants of their events.
