Tallinn bans City Tour buses from Viru Square07.08.2012, 16:50
Red double-deckers used by Hansabuss as hop-on-hop-off coaches can no longer stand at Viru square because the City has overnight installed traffic signs at the square banning tourism buses from stopping at Viru square.
According to Neeme Tammis, CEO of Hansabuss, Tammis the town’s transport department did not notify the coach company about the change of traffic regulations although the route operating permit issued to Hansabuss by the City specifically permits the buses to stay there.
“We are very surprised at such an unjustified decision made against our backs. On July 10 we received a letter from the Tallinn transport department in which they informed us that our red City Tour buses standing at Viru square are endangering traffic. This claim is entirely false,” said Tammis.
He added that the company has requested from the City expert analysis on the traffic situation in Viru square and will meet City’s representatives tomorrow.
