Smart bus stops to be built in Tallinn as part of a major urban development program

As an important part of the city’s streetscape modernization program, Tallinners will soon be able to shelter from the rain in solar-powered smart stops.


The City of Tallinn has signed a fairly long-term, 21-year contract with JCDecaux Eesti OÜ for the installation and maintenance of new public furniture and decorations. As part of this contract, 1,200 smart bus stops are planned to be installed on the city’s streets, of which the first 313 will be delivered by 2024.

As the number of people using public transport in the Estonian capital has been steadily increasing in recent years, the city administration is committed to improving conditions and increasing the comfort of travelers. The new bus stops will not only provide shelter from the weather for the residents, but will also be greened and the displays with traffic information will be powered by solar panels.
