Free public transport for residents across Estonia due to begin in July


Estonia is set to implement free transport for its residents across much of the country as of July 1. The free fare zone will run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

No country has ever before looked to abolish fares all day, every day, across such a large area.

The country is already a world leader in free public transit after fares on buses, trains and trams in Tallinn were abolished in 2013.

Estonia's Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure, Kadri Simson, said there will be a transition process to implement the free journeys across the country, although some areas have opted out of the scheme.
