Operating income and expenses
HSL’s activities are financed by ticket revenue, municipal contributions, subsidies and other income.
In the 2017 budget, ticket revenue is estimated to account for 51per cent, municipal contributions from the member municipalities for 46,5 per cent and other income for 2,5 per cent of HSL's operating income. Operating expenses are allocated to each member municipality based on the use of the services. Ticket revenue is allocated by municipality on the basis of the ticket revenue proceeds for each municipality. The demand data (boardings and passenger kilometers by mode of transport) used in the allocation of expenses is based on ticket surveys and Travel Card system data or other similar data collected from reliable sources.
