Bus tickets can be bought either from the bus station ticket office or directly from the driver. Online schedules available at tpilet.ee; buy tickets in advance if you’re travelling in the height of summer or at weekends.
The rail network is limited, but trains are as fast as buses and slightly cheaper. Check edel.ee for times and prices; purchase your ticket from the conductor.
The bigger cities have efficient public transport systems, and are well geared towards being explored by bike, as are the islands such as Saaremaa. Due to the scarcity of public transport on the islands, many locals hitchhike; the usual precautions apply.
