One card for all journeys
The HSL card provides an easy and cost-effective payment option. It is valid on all public transport in Helsinki, Espoo, Kauniainen, Vantaa, Kerava, Kirkkonummi, Siuntio and Tuusula: buses, commuter trains, the Metro, trams and the Suomenlinna ferry.
There are two types of HSL cards, and the choice of card depends on its purpose of use. A new card costs €5.
A personal HSL card can only be used by the owner of the card. It is the most economical option: as the HSL area municipalities and neighboring municipalities subsidize the public transport journeys of their residents, the residents can buy HSL card season tickets that are cheaper than general or multi-user season tickets.
A multi-user HSL card is well-suited for joint use, for example, for companies and families as well as for residents of other municipalities. A multi-user HSL card can be used by anyone holding the card who belongs to the same customer group.
Season ticket and value on the same card
You can either travel with a season ticket loaded on your card or pay your fare with value, i.e. money loaded on it. Loading a season ticket is recommended if you use public transport regularly, for example for commuting.
Loading value is a good option for occasional users of public transport. Value tickets bought with a HSL card are cheaper than single tickets bought from the driver or conductor.
