Tallinn , SMILE

The hot summer weather has arrived in Tallinn giving the best conditions to implement priority and information systems in public transport. A Swedish company called Thoreb AB (executor of the procurement contract) has commenced the installation of equipment for priority and information systems. 12 Tallinn Bus Company buses and 5 Tallinn Tram and Trolleybus Company trolleybuses are now completely equipped.

By 31st August, the executor has to complete the installation of 20 buses, 10 trolleybuses, 26 intersections as well as all the depot-servers and antenna-receiver for collecting the data from vehicles.During this period the City of Tallinn also carried out the next tendering procedure of public procurement called “New traffic schemes on the public transport’s priority area”. The executor, Estonian company called K-Projekt AS has prepared schemes and (gathered) data for entering it into a GIS-chart of Tallinn city.The experiences gained from the SMILE project have also been very useful in the preparation of a CIVITAS Plus project. Whereas Tallinn is implementing only two measures within CIVITAS SMILE, CIVITAS plus incorporates 11 ambitious measures.
