The long-distance bus station moved to its current location in 1959, from the Viru Square (then called the Stalin Square). The first station building was a one-story wooden building. The current building was built in 1965 to celebrate the 25th anniversory of the Estonian SSR.[2] In 2012 a major renovation of the building took place.[3]
