Railway bridge repairs to cause changes in train timetables
On September 15 and 16, trains to Tartu, Valga, and Koidula will be traveling based on a temporary timetable. Replacement buses are partially used on the Jõgeva-Tart segment.
“Train traffic between Jõgeva and Tartu will be suspended for 24 hours, meaning that on Tuesday, trains will run in the morning and buses must be used for the remainder of the day. On Wednesday, trains will run starting from 10 a.m. and for early morning departures buses must be used just like the day before. The buses will have a number of stops in Tartu. So as to enable journeys from Tallinn to proceed through Tartu towards Koidula and Valga, timetables for these routes will be changed as well,” explained Elron’s Sales and Development Manager Ronnie Kongo.
Stops for replacement buses:
JÕGEVA – parking lot on Puiestee street next to the railroad
KAAREPERE - Kaarepere bus stop (on Tartu-Jõgeva-Aravete highway)
TABIVERE – stop by Tabivere train stop parking lot (on Tabivere street)
KÄRKNA - Kärkna bus stop (on Kärevete-Kärkna highway)
TARTU – Salvest bus stop (on Jõhvi-Tartu highway)
TARTU - Kesklinn I bus stop (on Jõhvi-Tartu highway)
TARTU - Raudteejaam bus stop (on Vaksali street)
Replacement bus stops will be designated by boards in Elron colors; visit Elron’s home page or refer to information stands on waiting platforms for the location of said bus stops and information on timetable changes; train related information is also available free of charge by calling our 24/7 hotline at (+372) 616 0245.
Note that replacement buses cannot accommodate bicycles on board. Passengers with reduced mobility seeking to travel the segment serviced by replacement buses are kindly requested to contact us by e-mailing email@example.com or calling (+372) 6160245.
Above changes only apply on September 15 and 16 and following these two days, trains will once again run based on their regular timetable.
