The summer-only Citybike scheme requires a €5 fee and a photo ID. Pay the fee and get the key from the Visit Tampere tourist office and you'll have access to a whole network of bikes around town.


The local bus system is extensive. A one-day ticket costs an adult/child €8/4 for inner-city zones and €16/8 to cover the complete network; single-trip tickets for short trips cost €3/1.50. Check route maps online at
