We also plan transport in the long-term

In 2050, the Helsinki region is expected to be home to two million people. 

In order to make everyday life smoother for all of us and for businesses to thrive, the 14 municipalities in the Helsinki region cooperate closely on long-term housing, land use and transport planning. We are responsible for transport system planning.

We work to enable an increasing share of journeys to be made by public transport and by other sustainable modes of transport. According to a survey we conducted in 2018, 22 percent of journeys in the Helsinki region were made by public transport.


We provide services for everybody

We cherish equality and non-discrimination by providing public transport services that are as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.

Accessibility of vehicles and stops helps the elderly and people with limited mobility.

We also pay attention to the accessibility of our digital services.
