CURRENT: The former head of the Tallinn Transport Department joins T grupp OÜ

On 18.09.2023, Andres Harjo, who previously headed the Tallinn Transport Department for 17 years, joined T grupp OÜ, which offers public mobility services, as the manager of the business direction of bus stations. This spring, the long-time leading official of the city’s transport sector announced his decision to leave his current position, and his last day of work in the public sector was 14.08.2023.

T grupp OÜ CEO Airika Aruksaar said that Harjo’s extensive knowledge and experience in traffic management and public transport networks is a solid addition to the T grupp OÜ team, which operates bus stations in Tallinn, Tartu, Rakvere and Jõhvi. “At the end of August, when we first discussed possible employment, it was clear that our visions match and we see the concept of attractive and efficient bus station services similarly. We believe that with the help of Andres Harjo, we can increase the comfort for passengers in all bus stations managed by T grupp OÜ and further expand the network,” explained Aruksaar.

Harjo said that his long experience in the public sector helped him to understand that solutions for more efficient mobility are created in cooperation between the public and private sectors. “In reality, public sector plans are mostly implemented by private companies – so it is critical that the cooperation between the local government, the state and private companies is effective and trustworthy. Often, however, the various parties tend to disagree, so one of the first tasks is definitely to develop cooperation with the public sector. This is the only way to develop attractive mobility solutions for passengers,” said Harjo.

T grupp OÜ belongs to Mootor Grupp AS and operates in the integration and development of public transport infrastructure on the following platforms: Cargobus – parcel delivery in buses, Tpilet – long-distance bus ticket sales platform and Bussijaam – operating a network of bus stations.
