I was told that there were no vehicles that could go into Old Town, which turned out not to be strictly true. Taxis are one of the few vehicles that can get around old town. I didn't try to use any taxis, but I did see them. Interestingly, I find that the rates are not uniform - each company sets their own rates.

This is what the Tallinn webpage says about taxis
Taxis can be hailed on the street..They can also be found queuing up at taxi stands in front of larger hotels and some major intersections.

.... Each taxi's rates are posted on a yellow sticker on the car's right rear window. The cost usually consists of a base fare (starting fare) plus a per-kilometre fare.

It is illegal for the driver to smoke or to allow others to smoke in the taxi.
It is always a good idea to make sure the taxi?s meter is turned on.
In all registered taxis, a white, plastic operator?s card with the driver?s photo and name is attached to the middle of the dashboard. If you do not see this card, you may be in an unregistered taxi.
The driver is not allowed to ask for more than what is on the meter.
The driver must be paid in euros. A few taxis also accept payment by bank card.
