Free public transport for international events

Tallinn offers the opportunity to apply for free public transport for delegates of international events (conferences, cultural and sports events). Public transportation in Tallinn includes buses, trams and trolleybuses.

For this, a new free public transport ticket has been developed – the conference QR ticket, of which there will be 2 versions for each successfully applied event: a printable QR code and a virtual code to be displayed on a smart device. The QR pass can be sent to the delegate via e-mail ahead of the event, so they would be able to use the ticket immediately after arriving in Tallinn. The QR code can also be printed on event badges.

The QR code will be issued to the event organiser after approval from the city government and after fulfilling points 4 and 5 below. The QR code must be validated every time when entering public transportation, at the validator machine by the front door of the vehicle.

If you are interested in applying for free transportation for your conference delegates, please contact Tallinn Convention Bureau: Meeli Jaaksoo, convention manager,
