The New Stations

Go on a virtual journey from Tallinn to Vilnius!


Overall, there will be 7 international rail stations: Ülemiste and Pärnu International Terminals  in Estonia, Rīga and Rīga International Airport Terminals, while in Lithuania Rail Baltica will stop at Panevėžys, Kaunas and Vilnius International Terminals.

According to the Rail Baltica Operational plan the high-speed trains from Tallinn to Warsaw and from Tallinn to Vilnius are estimated to run 4 times per day once the line is launched and up to 6 times per day within 10 years of operations. Additionally, up to 10 trains per day will run on the Vilnius-Kaunas-Warsaw route. The plan also includes 2 night-trains on the route Tallinn-Riga-Kaunas-Warsaw-Berlin and Vilnius-Kaunas-Warsaw-Berlin, enabling passengers to travel further to other destinations in Europe.

Furthermore, travelers will be able to reach the Riga International Airport from the Riga Central Station by using a shuttle in around 10 minutes, with a minimum of one train every 30 minutes.



Rail Baltica tracks can be used not only for international train services but also for regional and cross-border regional services, bringing the fast and clean transport mode to different locations throughout the whole Rail Baltica corridor.

For example, the plan suggests a sufficient passenger demand to run regional train services from Bauska to Rīga, from Salacgrīva to Rīga (Latvia), from Pärnu to Tallinn (Estonia), and from Marijampole through Kaunas to Vilnius (Lithuania). Furthermore, the plan indicates a feasible demand for regional cross-border traffic, such as from Marijampole to Rīga (Lithuania-Latvia), or from Tallinn to Riga airport (Estonia-Latvia). It should be noted however, that the future of the regional traffic development on Rail Baltica will require additional studies and governmental decisions.

The Rail Baltica Operational plan estimates that there will be several regional train stations and stops in each Baltic country: 12 in Estonia, 15 in Latvia and 10 in Lithuania.



Rail Baltica stations will be balancing passengers’ comfort, accessibility and architectural ambitions. This means intentionally integrating various modes of transport such as cars, buses and bicycles, into train station development, emphasizing the role of stations as multimodal mobility hubs. For example, Rail Baltica international stations will have bicycle parking and electrical car charging facilities, as well as thoroughly planned accessibility for people with disabilities.

10 minutes are with shuttle, while for international trains it is 8 minutes due to additional stops in shuttle case.
