Tram

The tram is a punctual and comfortable way to travel

The construction of the tramway to Tampere began at the beginning of 2017. The service was launched in August 2021 and the trams are already in heavy use. Line 1 runs from Kauppi (Tays Central Hospital) and line 3 from Hervanta via railway station to the center of Tampere.

The track is currently being extended west. A new section of track from Pyynikintori to Santalahti will be available in 2023. In 2024, the tram will run as far as Lentävänniemi.

Tramway makers

The tram is part of Nysse's public transport system. Trips are paid for with Nysse tickets, and the same travel instructions for example prams, aids and vehicles apply to both trams and buses. You can find timetables on Nysse's timetable services and ask advice on traveling from Nysse's customer service.

The design of the tram system, the procurement of equipment, traffic and the construction and maintenance of the track are handled using an alliance model of Tampere Tramway. The alliance includes Tampereen Raitiotie Oy, Raitiotieallianssi (construction), Liikennöintialliassi (traffic), Kunnossapitoallianssi (maintenance) and the City of Tampere.

Welcome to renew the lines of the western service area

The Nysse lines was renewed in 2021, when the tram began its service. As the track expands in the next few years from Pyynikintori to Santalahti and Lentävänniemi, it is time to design the western bus and tram lines as a compatible entity. Be an expert in your area and help us make the best possible public transportation service in the West.

Confirm the validity of your ticket each time you travel

The tram uses the Nysse payment system, which means that you can use the same tickets on the tracks as well as on the bus. There are several payment methods available to you: contactless payment, travel card, mobile ticket and advance ticket.

The ticket device can be found at the central door of the tram. An inspection fee of € 80 can be charged for a passenger without a confirmed ticket or travel right.

How to pay

The tram is accessible

Get on board primarily from the central doors of where the ticket device is located. The stops are built at street level, so it is easy to get in and out with aids as well.

The ride is smooth, but there may be sudden movements as the tram leaves from the stop. You can get support from the bars or loops hanging from the ceiling. A place or seat for a special group is polite to give to those who need it more.

Wheelchair and rollator users and those traveling with prams are allowed to travel free of charge. Pets are also welcome. There is a place for bicycle in the tram, but you have to buy a single ticket for it if the cyclist is 7 years old or older.

Accessibility

Tram replacement service

The tram service may be interrupted due to, for example, track damage or a technical fault. If the disturbance is estimated to last more than 2 hours, the service can be replaced by buses running on tram route,

The replacement buses do not stop at tram stops. The bus stops are marked with red stop signs and they can be found in the immediate vicinity of the tram stops.
