Before the journey
The tram is a new, very high quality and punctually operating part of the Tampere region public transport system. Traveling with tram is easy and fluent. However, there are a few things to keep in mind before getting on board.
Get to know the tram route
Check out the tram and bus lines
If you travel together by bus and by tram, get to know the Linjasto 2021 plan for bus routes. From the plan you can see how the buses and the trams work together.
Buy the ticket in advance
At the tram, the driver focuses solely on driving. Use your Nysse travel card by showing it to the bus/tram card reader. You can also pay with the Nysse Mobile smartphone app and contactless payment. The ticket needed in trams includes zones A-B.
No need to wave hands
The tram stops at every stop. However, feel free to wave goodbye for the driver or your fellow passengers.
Enter through the middle doors
You don’t have to mind the gap, for it is minimized between the tram car and the platform.
Pay your trip
Validate your ticket always when entering the tram. Show your Nysse travel card to the card reader. You can stamp the ticket you purchased on Nysse Mobile ticket at the bottom of the card reader by aligning the QR code with the green light. The contactless payment terminal is on the left side of the card reader. A valid paper ticket for a bus trip does not need to be stamped, but it must be kept for the duration of the trip.
Safely in tram
The tram ride is smooth, but be prepared for oscillations and sudden braking. Hold on to the bar or loop if you are standing while traveling in the tram. Also get support when paying or moving around the tram.
Bicycles and strollers can be taken on board
There is also room for wheelchairs, rollators and pets. Please, note that during the worst rush-hours, we cannot guarantee a space for bicycle or wheelchair.
Pay attention to your fellow travelers
Respect others by giving space. Enjoy messy or heavily scented food only after the trip.
Just enjoy the smooth ride and nice scenery. You can also charge your mobile phone with the USB plug!
Looking for stop button? Just relax and wait!
The tram stops at every stop. Move forward to the platform from the middle doors or side doors. Welcome aboard again!
