News from Estonia: Free Public Transport in Tallinn ?
After providing every citizen with free internet (guaranteed by constitution) this little baltic country may do another progressive step towards the future.
The city council of the capital Tallinn is asking the people this week if public transportation should be free of charge from 2013 on.
The city hopes to reduce car use, traffic jams and pollution in the municipality by opening up trams, trolleybuses, buses and suburban trains to everyone.
In case the referendum will end in favour of the proposal free public transport could save a four member family up to 600 Euros a year.
On the other side the city would have to bear costs of an estimated 20 million Euros a year.
YES! 75,5 percent voted in favour of the proposal!
Another reason to visit this little country again :)
