Getting to the venue
The festival venue, the University of Tartu Academic Sports Club (Ujula 4) is approximately 1 kilometer from the city center, which is quite easy to reach by foot. However, the distances in a foreign city might seem a bit further than in your home town. Therefore we have quite many different ways to get to the venue.
Ϟ BusUsing the bus is free during the event week if you have a sTARTUp Day wristband. This is also the most environmentally friendly option (other than walking) to get to the venue & around Tartu. Check more information about schedules here.
If you would like to use public transportation before and after the event, tickets can be purchased directly from the bus driver with cash or pay for your trip with a contactless bank card at the validation points on the bus. Find more information about tickets here.
Ϟ City bikesTartu has an awesome city bike system. There are 69 bike stations and 750 bikes all around Tartu. 2/3 of the bikes are electric, which makes pedalling especially easy.
sTARTUp Day attendees can use the code "sTARTUpsmartbike" to get a weekly pass for just 5€. With this, you can ride around as much as you want on either electric or regular bikes.
The Smart City Bikes are accessible via the Tartu Smart Bike App available in Google Play and App Stores. To activate the discount code, choose "weekly pass" from the payment options and insert the discount code. You can use the same app to unlock bikes. Find more info here.
Ϟ TaxiIf 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 by using the Bolt app, created by an Estonian unicorn. Unfortunately, there is no Uber in Tartu.
But you can also do it in the old way, you can check the information about the taxi service in Tartu.
