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 Kaupin Kampus (Tays Central Hospital) to Santalahti and line 3 from Hervanta to Sorin aukio. Both lines run right next to the Tampere railway station.

The track is currently being extended west. The route section from Pyynikintori to Santalahti opened on August 7, 2023. In January 2025, the tram will run as far as Lentävänniemi.

The tramway spreading to the west will also bring changes to the bus line. The update of the western bus lines was planned together with the residents of the area. The first route changes will be introduced in summer 2024.

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 operations of Tampere Tramway are carried out in close cooperation between several actors. The design and construction of the Tampere Tramway track infrastructure and depot, as well as the operation and maintenance, are carried out in an alliance model. Škoda Transtech is responsible for the maintenance of the rolling stock.

Journey Planner

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.

On trams, ticket devices can be found at all doors. 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

The stops are built at street level, so it is easy to get in and out with aids as well. On trams, ticket devices can be found at all doors.

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.


Tram disruptions

The tram service may be interrupted due to, for example, track damage or a technical fault. During the disruption, you can continue your journey by bus. Find the nearest stops and an alternative route in the Journey Planner.

If the disruption is prolonged, the service will be replaced by a bus running on the tram route. The replacement bus 18R, 7R or 3R use the bus stops along the tram route. The bus stops are marked with red signs and they can be found in the immediate vicinity of the tram stops.

For the time being, there is no separate replacement bus on the route between Santalahti and Pyynikintori. Bus lines 9, 19 and 82 run on the same route.
