Transport within Finland

The main things to know about public transport in Finland:

1. It is integrated, thus one ticket can be used for all means of public transport: bus, train, metro, local train.

2. The greater Helsinki consists of three cities: Helsinki, Vantaa (where the airport is located) and Espoo (where the conference is held). One ticket is for a certain city (or for all of them) and travel time. If you travel only inside Helsinki (or only inside Espoo), a one-zone internal ticket should be purchased (symbol "1" on ticketing machines). It is valid for all means of transportation inside the corresponding city region for 60 minutes. If you travel over more than one city, for example, from the airport (Vantaa) to the venue (Espoo) or from the venue (Espoo) to the Helsinki center, the regional ticket is needed (symbol "2" on ticketing machines). It is valid for all means of transportation inside the whole greater Helsinki region for 80 minutes. For more information about fares and zones please check the Helsinki Region Transport webpage (in English).

3. Tickets can be purchased directly to your mobile phone with the HSL Mobile ticket app (with a lower than the usual price, e.g. for travel from the airport to the venue it will be 4.20 € instead of 5.50 €). Other way, tickets can be purchased from the bus driver (please note that tickets cannot be purchased in the train, tram or metro train), ticket machine (you can find them on the platform in the airport train station, or in other larger stations) or R-kioski.
