Traveling with children
Bus drivers have limited visibility of the children on board as the mirrors do not cover all areas and small children easily fall in a blind spot. The electronic eyes on the doors are located at a height of around one metre and thus, preschool aged children may go unnoticed. For safety reasons, when getting off a bus or tram children should go first.
When traveling with a child aged 0-6 years in a pram, pushchair or wheelchair, you are entitled to free travel on all public transport (excluding U line buses except for bus 874). The child does not have to be in the pram or pushchair on boarding the vehicle. Please take care that the pram remains firmly in place.
Bus and tram drivers do not have to take on board several prams, pushchairs, or wheelchairs at the same time if the space reserved for them is full. Please note that on Kerava internal lines 5 and 8 prams may be taken on board at the driver's discretion.
On low-floor trams, the space for prams is located by the two front doors, on other trams the space is in the middle. On buses, the space is in the middle and you should board through the middle doors. On metro trains, there is space for prams opposite the doors; on new metro trains, the best place is in the middle section. Prams are allowed also on commuter trains.
When boarding on a high-floor bus or tram, lift the pram with the handle side going in first. When getting off a low-floor bus or tram, it is safest that you first get off yourself and pull the pram out by the handle. At Metro stations, please use the lift as it is not safe to take prams on escalators.
Buses and trams have a special pram button. Use the button to make the doors stay open longer. All passengers with reduced mobility are advised to use the pram button. The buttons are placed near the doors.
