Public transport in Tampere region is organized jointly between eight municipalities, Tampere, Pirkkala, Nokia, Kangasala, Lempäälä, Ylöjärvi, Vesilahti and Orivesi. The city of Tampere is the competent authority as it manages public transport’s traffic and transportation planning, ticket system, communications and customer service.
All of our buses - called Nysse - are colored blue-white so it is easy to see which bus you can hop on! The transportation services are ordered and operated by the city's own transport company and private operators.
The payment system is easy to use. Zone boundaries are primarily based on distance. The zones are named by letters A through F from the inner to the outer zone. Tickets are always valid for at least two adjacent zones (AB or BC for instance). Tampere is mainly located in zones A and B.
