My father and I are staying in Tallinn, in a flat on Pae street. We don't know the city or the language.
We have used the bus today to go downtown and back. Going downtown, the driver told us to just sit down because we couldn't offer the exact fare (4€); on returning, there was no cash provision at all and the same thing happened, we rode for free.
So now we don't want to rely on this continuing, but as far as we could make out online:
- presold tickets are only available downtown,
- the transport company's app requires a credit card, or else already holding their debit card,
- that fare debit card is supposedly (by website) available at Maxima supermarket near us, but we don't see at the moment how it will be paid/charged up.
We have a German giro card with Maestro, which got employed at a store today but worked only sticking it in, not contactless as the fare gadgets in the bus have it.
Will we be able to get and charge a bus card tomorrow? (the store does open)
How else can we pay?
