However, the construction works will last until March 2027, and as it is a complex development during which we need to maintain train traffic, the extremely important tram connection for our campus has been closed according to today's forecast until December 2025. We fully understand that the lack of such an important transport connection causes some inconvenience. Ülemiste City has contributed to accessibility by public transport for many years and fully supports alternative types of transportation to cars, so we want to find the best solutions for replacing the tram line with buses in cooperation with the developers of the Ülemiste City area, the city of Tallinn and Rail Baltic Estonia.
So what is the most convenient way to get to Ülemiste City from the city centre and Lasnamäe?
- Bus line no. 15 Estonia – Sõjamäe. From September 1, there are additional buses and a busier autumn timetable: https://transport.tallinn.ee/#bus/15/a-b.
- Bus line no. 2 Balti Jaam – Mõigu. Added stop at the airport, from which Ülemiste City is only a short walk away: https://transport.tallinn.ee/#bus/2/a-b.
- Bus line no. 7 Seli – Sõjamäe: https://transport.tallinn.ee/#bus/7. Bus stops at Ülemiste City from the Majaka põik tram stop: Pae – Järvevana – Ülemiste jaam – Dvigatel – Lõõtsa – Valukoja – Kaubajaama. Interval in rush hour 3 – 4 buses per hour.
- Trams no. 2 Kopli – Suur-Paala and no. 4 Tondi – Suur Paala started on September 1. By taking the tram to the stop Majaka põik, you can change to bus no. 7 Seli – Sõjamäe, which will take you to Ülemiste.
The developers of Ülemiste City will continue to cooperate with the city of Tallinn to add a circular bus to the trajectory Majaka põik – Keevise st – Airport – Lõõtsa st – Majaka põik, so that passengers could smoothly get from buses and trams to Ülemiste City.
We also await suggestions on improving bus traffic from our community. Please share your experience with us and help make Ülemiste City more accessible. Answer the short questionnaire HERE.
