Transportation

Tallinn is small and well connected with the airport. You can use bus number 2 from Airport (Lennujaam) to the city center. Timetables are HERE.

Bolt is the most common taxi / scooter app, which you can download and connect with your credit card.

More information:

Public transport in Tallinn includes buses, trollies, trains and trams. The use of it is free of charge if holding a temporary right of residency in Tallinn, however besides the Estonian ID card the user needs to have a validated Public Transport Card aka Green Card as well to obtain the right of free ride. The card costs 2€ and can be bought from different places, incl. R-Kiosk.
PS the card needs to be validated every time you enter public transport (can be done inside transport).

Public transport that brings you to EKA:

  • Trams 1, 2,
  • Buses 2, 21, 21B, 41, 41B, 43, 59, 66, 73, 102, 104A, 114, 115, 116, 116B, 121, 122, 127A, 129, 132, 138, 154, 158, 160, 162, 174, 122,
  • Trollies 4, 5
  • Trains R21, R14, R16

Main taxi companies in Estonia are Bolt, Tallink, Tulika, but there are plenty of other, smaller companies as well. The cost for taxi service depends on the company, but the average starting fee is 2.50€, each km passed is 0.65€.

As EKA is conveniently located on the border of Old Town and Kalamaja (in North Tallinn district), it means a higher number of students use bikes for travelling around the city. However, during the months of November-March, it generally snows in Estonia, which makes it difficult or impossible to cycle at that time and therefore public transport or taxi comes in handy.

The public transport network operates from 6:00 to 23:30 daily (on Friday-Sunday also some Night buses named ÖÖ). The ticket system works on a random-inspection basis: you don’t have to show anything to the driver. Simply remember to validate each entry at one of the orange validators (or risk a €40 fine). It is not necessary to re-validate your ticket when exiting the vehicle.

Please note! We have ongoing construction of the new tramline. Therefore there will be temporary changes in public transport routes and some tram lines are closed. You might experience some traffic jams and it’s a lovely walk through the Old Town as an alternative.
