Estonia is making public transport free

Five years ago, the Estonian capital of Tallinn introduced free public transport after officials asked residents to vote on the proposal in a public referendum – 75% said yes. All people had to do was register as a resident of the city, and pay €2 for a “green card”. However, visitors, including those from other parts of Estonia, and tourists have to pay to use Tallinn’s network of buses, trams, trains and trolley buses.
