No train services due to a strike from 20 March.
We have put together a few tips that will help you to make the most of responsible public transport.
More rail travel means fewer emissions.
When you travel by train, tram or the metro, you can enjoy the smooth ride watching the views passing by or working, for example.
A professional driver takes you comfortably to your destination.
Choosing public transport is not only good for the environment and your wallet, it also saves your time.
Public transport uses dedicated lanes for faster travel.
Moreover, you don’t have to waste your time searching for parking.
Public transport is a responsible choice that also provides value for money.
Calculate the annual total cost of a car including servicing, insurance, taxes, parts subject to wear and depreciation.
Compare the cost with the cost of the season ticket you would need; you will notice that you will save a lot of money by not having a car.
Public transport is a team effort. The more convenient and safer it is to travel, the more people will choose public transport.
So please mind your manners: keep your voice down, use perfume in moderation, leave space for other passengers and keep your feet off the seats.
Small things make a difference for all of us.
If you do not yet have an employer-subsidized commuter ticket, why not have a word with your employer?
Companies can provide their employees with employer-subsidized commuter tickets or commuter vouchers; they are tax-free to employees up to EUR 3,400 a year.
We are also happy to advise your employer on responsible commuting.

Cycling and public transport go well together.
You can leave your bike at a Park & Ride or take it with you on the metro as well as on commuter trains and the Suomenlinna ferry.
However, please remember that bikes are not allowed on trams and buses.
