How to get from the Tampere airport to the city centre?

  • By taxi:
    From the front of the terminals, about 25-30 euros to the city center. You can also try to find an Airport Taxi, which is a minivan costing 14 euros per person – it usually waits for arrivals in front of the terminals. You can also find a pre-booking email contact on their web page. Be sure to inform which terminal (1 or 2) you are arriving to!
  • By bus:
    Terminal Two: Ryanair provides a bus to the centre after your arrival. Buy the ticket (approx. 8 euros) from inside the airport building. You can also walk (200-300 m) to Terminal One for the cheaper buses.
    Terminal One: Paunu buses go from the terminal to the city centre. Buy the ticket in the bus (approx. 4 euros). You might have to wait as these go infrequently. You can find the schedule on the Paunu website: http://www.paunu.fi/pdf/Tre-TMP-Tre_07-08b.pdf.
