It's because of the new visual identity that the Tallinn city transport authority chose... each mode of PT has it's own style.. trams will be red/orange, buses green and trolleybuses blue...



More pictures of the new style here (beware, the site is only in Estonian)

But it's a huge number, and more than needed. But the authority noticed that thoso buses are too much, but they noticed too late. Then they decided to not to buy 50 MAN and 50 Mercedes buses.

Later, these firms sold those buses to other cities. For example MAN sold them to Kayseri, Gaziantep. And Mercedes sold them to Denizli, İstanbul. And I saw that Talinn's buses have the same design as Ankara.

They are Talinn's buses;

And it's Ankara's buses design. It's Conecto, but Lion's City's' buses have the same design. Municipality did a poll, and we picked this one.


I wrote too much things, I know. But I saw in a Turkish forum that MAN sold the buses also to Talinn which Ankara decided to not to buy. You know something about it?

And i'm sorry for my English but I really wondered this case, and tried to write as much as I can.
Interesting. We saw them first in early summer 2014. Afaik,5 such MAN buses are used by private operator MRP Liinid. This caused bit of excitement in SSC Estonian forum as main city owned PT operator has so far considered CNG and LNG buses not suitable to Tallinn conditions (in another words - they think those are too expensive) and then suddenly smaller private operator starts using several new CNG buses

Here's one in Tallinn:

Huvitav kas uute busside värvilahendus on tehase standard või kavatseb MRP ka mingi reaalse firma stiili välja aretada?

First new tram hits tracks in Estonian capital

The first of the brand new trams purchased for the city of Tallinn entered service on Tuesday by departing on Route 3 from the stop of Vana-Louna next to the city's tram depot at 1 p.m.





«I can't say yet when exactly the second and third new tram will start service, they are undergoing tests and adjustment at this point,» spokeswoman for the public transport company TLT Sirje Roht told BNS on Tuesday.

The Spanish manufacturer CAF has promised to deliver the fourth brand new unit by April 6.

Altogether 20 brand new trams will start serving tram routes 3 and 4 of the Tallinn tram system, of which 16 are to be delivered during 2015. The four remaining units, bought using an option made available under the original purchase and sale agreement, will arrive during the first quarter of 2016.

The total cost of the project, which includes reconstruction of a big section of the track, is 91 million euros.

I am surprised no one has mentioned this earlier but Tallinn is (I think) the only city that offers it's residents free rides on public transport.

Free public transit in Tallinn is a hit with riders but yields unexpected results
