Inner city bus transportation
Buses constitute the only form of public transport within the City of Tartu. There are 25 bus routes in the city, with a total length of 491,1 km. Since 2011, Tartu’s public transport has been run by the transport company AS Sebe. All buses servicing city routes have low floors and follow a single design. In 2011, the city introduced 5 buses which run on compressed gas, and which can also use biogas for fuel. In 2013, information signboards were installed at 44 bus stops, providing real-time information on the arrival of buses at the stops. From autumn 2015, a new electronic ticketing system went live, with passengers using a contact-free smart card or sticker to register their journeys at the on-board validators at the beginning of each journey.
