Getting to the venue
The festival venue, the University of Tartu Academic Sports Centre (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 pedaling especially easy.
The Smart City Bikes are accessible via the Tartu Smart Bike App available in Google Play and App Stores. You can use the same app to unlock bikes. Find more info here.
Ϟ E-scootersIf you're feeling adventurous, you can rent a Bolt scooter to get around town. All you have to do is find a Bolt scooter on the street or locate one using the Bolt app, use the app to unlock the scooter, and start your ride.
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 - check the information about the taxi service in Tartu.
