Helsinki, Tallinn and Tartu create joint public transport mobile ticket app – making it easier to buy tickets when travelling to each city

 

Helsinki, Tallinn and Tartu have created an app that allows you to buy a ticket for public transport in all three cities. The name of the app is Pilet.ee 2020. The application is compatible with both Android and iOS devices and is available at the respective app stores.

Even without the application, a holder of the HSL Travel Card in Finland had the opportunity to buy day tickets for Tallinn and Tartu public transport. For example, under “Day tickets” you can tick “HSL Travel Card”, add the card number and buy a ticket.

For this reason, the holder of an HSL Travel Card does not need to obtain a new travel card in Tallinn or Tartu. The new app means that those travelling from Helsinki can buy a ticket for public transport in Tallinn and Tartu either online via the app or using their HSL Travel Card.

 “Using public transport in Helsinki will become more convenient for Estonians. Thanks to the new application, you don’t need to download a local mobile app or buy a local travel card or wait in the queue line for the ticketing machine while it’s freezing cold outside.” explained Andrei Novikov, Deputy Mayor of Tallinn.

The international public transport ticket system was implemented in cooperation between the three cities within the framework of the E-Ticketing project. The project has been funded by the European Union, among others. The Pilet.ee 2020 application has been developed by AS Ridango.
