As Tallinn airport is a relatively small one, it is easy to find the area where public transportation and taxis are waiting in front of the building. Bus (No 2, from the airport) stops not too far from the bus terminal (the “Autobussijaam” stop).

From Tallinn Sea Port it is easiest to take the taxi to the bus terminal. But also tram No 2 (towards Ülemiste) or bus No 2 will take you there (the “Autobussijaam” stop).

Buses are comfortable and may offer snacks and drinks for sale. Some buses are equipped with WiFi. The distance from Tallinn to Tartu is 185 km and it takes 2,5 hours to reach Tartu by bus.
