Like the world’s major cities, the cities of the Baltic Sea states have also experienced an increase in the traffic density. This has brought challenges to the development of urban transport as well as to environmental issues. Changes in people’s mobility preferences, the rapid development of new technologies and the European Union’s climate goals pose challenges for policy-makers, technology developers and everyday service providers.
On November 4th, AS Tallinna Linnatransport as the biggest public transport company in Estonia, will organize a Baltic Sea States’ Transport Vision Conference “Urban Transport in 2035” which will be held in Tallinn.
