Starting Friday, Lux Express will operate a new daily direct service between Tallinn and Warsaw, one of the most important hubs for bus passengers in Europe.
The journey takes 18 hours and fares start from 29 euros, Lux Express said in a press release.
The bus on Lux Express’ longest international route departs from Tallinn daily at 12:30 p.m., makes stops in Pärnu, Riga and Vilnius, and arrives in the Polish capital at 5:30 the next morning, or 6:30 a.m. Estonian time. From Warsaw to Tallinn, the bus departs at 11:45 p.m. Polish time and arrives at 6:25 p.m. the following day, with the same stops en route.
“In addition to the fact that passengers can now travel comfortably and faster between the two cities without having to change buses, the new route also offers the people of Estonia good options for connecting journeys to various European destinations,” said Ingmar Roos, member of the management board of Lux Express.
For example, from Warsaw passengers can take a direct bus to Berlin, Prague, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels and many other cities in nearly 25 countries. In addition, Warsaw Airport, from which direct flights depart to more than 120 cities in almost 50 countries, is located just a few kilometers from the bus station.
In addition, Warsaw itself is a popular tourist destination, a hub for major concerts and events. Last summer, for example, there was a concert by Beyonce there, and many people from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania traveled there in Lux Express buses, Roos said.
“The fact that the new bus service is certainly a good alternative for those who want to travel in a more environmentally friendly way is not insignificant either,” he added.
Tickets for the new Tallinn-Warsaw direct service costing from 20.90 euros can be purchased on the Lux Express website at luxexpress.eu.
