Light rail line stops are designated by information poles

You can recognize the light rail stops by the information poles. The poles have large passenger information boards attached to them, as well as stop signs colored in the light rail line colors and displaying the light rail symbol.

All stops have shelters. At the busiest stops, the stop shelters are longer and stop platforms are wider than at other stops. The busiest stops also have larger information boards than other stops.

Accessibility has been considered in the design of the stops. The stop platforms are level with the carriage floors.

Talking stops

The light rail line stops offer high-quality real-time information. We have also considered the needs of various special groups. Announcements tell when the next tram is due and service disruption alerts are read out loud.


The busiest stops (Itäkeskus, Viikki, Oulunkylä, Maunula, Hämeenlinnanväylä, Huopalahti, Leppävaara, Aalto University and Otaniemi) are equipped with larger information displays than the other stops.


The stops have buttons to push to hear how many minutes until the next light rail vehicle will arrive. This is especially helpful for visually impaired passengers.

Easy interchanges

As many passengers will be interchanging between the light rail line and other modes of transport, special attention has been paid to the ease of interchanges.


Bus stops and light rail line stops are close to each other to make interchanging easy. The stops are also easily accessible by bike and bike parking facilities will be made available.
