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.
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.
The light rail provides access to a wide range of services
Whether you are going for a nature walk, a shopping spree or to do sports, the light rail will take you to your destination. There is a wealth of services and attractions to visit along the 25-kilometer route.
