Last year, Finland celebrated its 100th anniversary. In Estonia, the festivities served as an opportunity to underscore 100 years of good relations with their neighbour. Celebrations, which included a concert, a photo contest and a friendly football match, extended to urban mobility: Estonia’s capital Tallinn offered Finnish citizens free public transport during two days in June.
Besides public transport such as rail, metro, tram and bus networks, collective passenger transport also covers car-sharing, car-pooling and flexible mobility services such as train-taxi schemes and demand-responsive transport in areas of low demand.
Improvements to public transport services may address public transport vehicles and related infrastructure, as well as management techniques.
