Tram routes 1, 2 and 7 will be diverted from 13 June to 14 August 2022. Tram route 8 will not operate at all. Instead, it will be replaced by bus 8X between Jätkäsaari and Sörnäinen. The reason for the arrangements is street works in various locations.
Changes to bus services
When the summer timetables take effect on 20 June, neighborhood routes 625 and 618 will be merged into new route 625 that will start running along the following route: Tikkurila–Tarhurinpuisto–Koivukylä–Rekolanmäki. Neighborhood buses will no longer serve the section of route between the laboratory in Tikkurila and Unikkotie. In addition, Simonkylä and Leinelä will no longer be served. More information on the change.
From 20 June, night bus 67N Railway Square (Rautatientori) – Torpparinmäki will serve the same route in both directions. More information on the change.
The Metro will switch to summer timetables on Monday on 20 June. Additionally, the turnaround track in Matinkylä will no longer be used. Instead, the metro trains will be turned around by reversing their direction. In other words, metro trains to Helsinki will depart one at a time from both tracks. There may be trains at the station waiting for next services to depart. It is therefore advisable to check the electronic timetable displays at the station to make sure from which track your service will depart.
