This is not exactly transportation, but surely helping with navigation, in Tallinn, your GSM cell phone will tell you exactly where you are, here it is telling me I am in Kotka street number 4, just amazing.
I added here few direct links for the most common and popular Tallinn connections.
You can visit Tallinn by all measures of transportations, bus, train, fly or ferry. You can also drive all the way from Europe, the roads are improving every year:
The Central Bus Station in Tallinn is situated about 2 km southeast of the city centre. I walked there, but there are several city buses and trams you can take ( I took tram 2 or 4 when I came back though). I arrived at the bus station at 8.30 and bought a ticket for the 8.45 bus to Haapsalu.
The bus journey to Haapsalu took 1 h 45 minutes and it was 105 EEK. In Haapsalu most people left the bus at the bus stop before the end stop. I decided to go to the bus station to ask for the timetable back to Tallinn. Well, it turned out there was no bus station (as written on the map in my guide book), but only a last stop by the old train station (now a museum). Instead I asked for the timetable at the tourist office.
When it was time to go back to Tallinn I walked to the same bus stop I had arrived to. When the bus arrived there was no problems to buy the ticket on board. Again the bus ride took 1 hour 45 minutes and was 105 EEK (April 2010).
In April 2010 buses left Tallinn for Haapsalu in the morning at:
8.45 (Mon - Sat)
And they returned to Tallinn in the afternoon/evening at:
16.20 (Fri, Sun)
The main road that leaves Tallinn to the East towards Narva ia a busy four-lane highway. Hardly anyone in the thousands of cars that pass here every day will think of the history of this road, and what - or better who - lies underneath concrete and gravel. The road is a memorial that recalls a dark chapter in history.
The road was built by German prisoners of war after World War II. According to Stalin's plans it was supposed to continue to Leningrad (St Petersburg) but his death in 1953 stopped the project somewhere near Maardu.
The prisoners of war had to work under the hardest conditions. Those who broke down from hunger and exhaust on the construction site were left where they fell and buried underneath gravel and concrete. So this road is also a gravesite.
Remember them when you drive along this road. The concrete cover has been renewed but the subconstruction is still the same.
From Latvia to Estonia you can go by car. Take road A1 to Ainazi and then through Parnu you can reach Tallinn. From Riga to Tallinn it takes approx. three to four hours and the roads in Estonia are very good and you can’t get lost because road signs are almost everywhere.
There are bus connections between Latvia and Estonia. The one I know is Eurolines.
There are no direct train connection which joins Latvia and Estonia.
You can go to Tallinn also by plane. From Latvia there goes Air Baltic.
