Juhan Tere, BC, Tallinn, 15.12.2009.Print version
Starting January 1, 2010, it will be possible for people to travel by train on the Tartu-Valga route again and use it to travel to Riga by train, EPL Online/LETA reports.

The connection was suspended in April 2008 due to extensive repairs of the railway.

 

Starting January four trips a day will take place on the Tartu-Valga route, two on both directions, said Edelaraudtee.

 

All of them will be linked to the passenger train departure and arrival times on the Tartu-Tallinn route. In the evening, people who come from Tallinn to Valga have to switch trains in Tartu, other trips will be without switching trains.

 

“In cooperation with Latvian colleagues, starting next year it will be possible to travel by train from Tartu to Riga,” said Edelaraudtee director general Kalvi Pukka. People can switch the train that departs from Tartu at 10 a.m in Valga for a Pasazieru vilciens train that departs from Valga at 11.42 and reaches Riga at 15.03.
