From country to city

Poorest nation, richest nation (Issue III+IV/2018)


On July 1, 2018, Estonia became the first country to provide free commuter transport to citizens. After a successful test that ran for the five years in the capital, Tallinn, the project is now being taken countrywide. It’s costing the government €3.3 million. The improved public transport system, particularly into and from more rural areas, is intended to make country life more attractive, as more locals move into the cities.
