New bus routes to launch in Espoo in August

New bus routes will launch in Espoo on 14 August 2023. There will be changes especially in Leppävaara and Tapiola, but the new trunk bus routes 520 and 530 will also affect bus routes in other parts of Espoo.

Below you can read more about the changes by route and area.

Why the changes?

  1. We want to ensure effective public transport links between Tapiola and Leppävaara also after the introduction of light rail line 15.
  2. We want to ensure that other bus routes and the new trunk bus routes 520 and 530 operate well together.
  3. We want to plan public transport services that cater to the needs of as many people as possible in the area.
  4. We want to take account of the impacts of route network plans for the surrounding areas.
