Estonians on track for free public transport

Green platform attempts to derail growth in number of road vehicles in one Baltic city.

    Estonians in the capital city of Talinn are soon to benefit from the arrival of free public transport.

    It is the first EU capital to make the shift and is part of a green platform adopted by Talinn's mayor, Edgar Savisaar.

    However, not everyone thinks the move will get cars off the road. The opposition fume that the idea is less about a clean environment and more about political opportunism.

    Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports from Talinn.
