Event description

From July 1, every county in Estonia can implement free public transport for its residents, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. While counties can opt out of the system, doing so would mean missing out onadditional funding from the national budget allocated for county public transport. Some cities in France and Germany are considering making public transport free to reduce traffic and air pollution, and Wales in the UK is experimenting with free weekend bus travel. But if Estonia’s plan is successful, it will become the world’s first free public transport nation. The city of Tallinn website says that free public transport benefits those on low incomes most, but it also encourages higher income groups to spend money in local restaurants, cafes and shops.
