HSL Executive Board approved new bus routes for Tapiola and Leppävaara

Our Executive Boad discussed the route network plan for Tapiola and Leppävaara on Tuesday 8 February and decided to approve the plan. The next step is that we start preparations to roll out the new routes.

The new bus routes are set to be introduced when the light rail line 550 starts operating, according to current estimate in early 2024.

Many thanks to all who participated in the planning!

Some 5,540 people responded to the travel survey we conducted to gather information about the strengths and weaknesses of the current route network as well as about where people travel for work, studies or leisure.

The survey on the draft route network plan we published in October 2021 received about 2,340 responses.

We also held online workshops for residents and conducted two short surveys about route options for some bus services.

Huge thanks to all of you who participated in the planning process!
