Service delays due to lengthy checks at the Estonian-Russian border

During the peak passenger traffic period, we would like to remind you to take into account the possibility of delays in the arrival of international bus lines due to long border and customs controls at the Estonian-Russian border. This should especially be taken into account when planning connections and transfers. Allow at least three hours for your transfer arrival time.

Baltic Shuttle cannot in any way influence the duration of border checks, which lead to significant delays for buses on route Tallinn — Saint Petersburg — Tallinn.

Estimated trip delays on the Tallinn — Saint Petersburg route as of November 2023 (updated): in the direction from Estonia to Russia and from Russia to Estonia from one hour to one and a half hours, occasionally up to two and a half hours.
