It is not possible to buy a ticket from the driver in Tallinn public transport
According to the new ticket regulation, the sale of paper tickets in public transport was abolished.
Tallinn has a ticket sales system in use that allows you to buy e-tickets for all Public Transport Cards issued in Estonia, QR tickets both with a smartphone and the Internet – as well as e-hour tickets with a contactless bank card from the validator at the front door. Giving up paper tickets is also environmentally friendly.
Guests of the city can buy a QR-ticket on paper at the airport, bus station, Viru terminal, and ticket machines in the A and D terminals of the port.
