During the diversion, replacement bus 10X will run from Meilahti to Pikku Huopalahti.

The service will be operated with minibuses and it will serve the “Kytösuo”, “Haapalahdenkatu” and “Korppaanmäki” stops. In addition, bus 10X will serve the temporary “Tilkan sairaala” and “Lääkintälotanrinne” stops on Tilkankatu.
