Metro test runs continue on 3 and 4 October

The West Metro test runs will continue on Tuesday 3 October and Wednesday 4 October for the whole day.

As with the previous test runs, passengers must get off the trains at the latest at Ruoholahti. On the test run days, all trains from Vuosaari and Mellunmäki go to Ruoholahti.

The new platform displays are tested at the same time. Currently there is one new display on each platform. In other words, on Thursday the Metro arrival times and destinations are shown on platform displays marked with "koekäytössä" (in test use) stickers. Other platform displays are switched off. This means passengers waiting for the train at the other end of the platform will not necessarily be able to see the display. HSL and HKL apologize for any inconvenience caused to passengers.matkustajainformaatiossa.

Changes and delays to Metro services are possible and passengers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys. Information about any changes to services will be available at, in the Journey Planner and on the Metro timetable displays. In addition, you can subscribe to receive HSL’s disruption alerts to your email.

Several test runs must be performed in conditions that resemble the future Metro service operating conditions as much as possible in order to prevent problems when passenger traffic begins on the West Metro section of line.
