The self-driving bus line connecting the Kadriorg Tram stop to the Kumu Art Museum is now open to the public and first passengers have already travelled on the driverless vehicle.

The route connects the Kadriorg tram stop to Kumu Art Museum and follows Weizenbergi Street to Kumu, then Mäekalda, Koidula and Poska Streets back to Weizenbergi Street. Bus stops are located in front of the Katharinenthal Café, next to the Kadriorg Art Museum, on the corner of Weizenbergi and Mäekalda Streets and at the Children’s Museum at Miiamilla.

The bus will carry passengers between 10 am and 1 pm and 2 pm and 4 pm from Tuesdays to Sundays. On Thursdays, when Kumu is open until 8 pm and on weekends, there will be an evening shift, the final schedule of which will be arranged according to demand.

The bus is part of the Sohjoa Baltic project which researches, promotes and pilots automated driverless electric minibuses as part of the public transport chain, especially for the first/last mile connectivity. In Estonia the project is run by Tallinn Transport Department in cooperation with Tallinn University of Technology (Taltech).
