Public transport in TartuTo get to the venue, take a bus 4 or 7 from the city centre (bus stop "Hansakeskus" next to the Tartu Bus Station), ride two stops to the bus stop "Vene" and walk 5 minutes to the venue (UT Sports Hall, Ujula 4a).
From 1 September 2015, the City of Tartu is using a modern ticketing system which is already in use in many places throughout Estonia and Europe. A contactless plastic chip card or a sticker, which must be swiped at the validator upon entering the bus, is being introduced. Use of the bus card is compulsory for all passengers except those traveling for free under the provisions of the Public Transportation Act.
Bus cards and stickers can be purchased at R-Kiosk, shopping centers, and other stores and they cost €2.
You can load money onto your card and buy tickets at sales points, online or via mobile phone.
Information about the bus lines could be found here.
Taxis in TartuIf it is your first time in Tartu, it is best to take a taxi to get to your final destination in the city. Most taxi drivers speak some English and all taxis are equipped with meters. The easiest way to order a taxi is using Taxify app, created by an Estonian unicorn. If you use the code 'startupdayfest', you'll get 5€ off your first ride (only if you pay by card). There is no Uber in Tartu.
