Ticket sales on commuter trains in the capital region will end on Monday 19 June. Conductors will remain on trains and patrol them in pairs. The change applies to HSL area trains and VR commuter trains.
From 19 June, commuter train passengers need to buy their tickets before boarding the train. Travel Card value tickets can be bought on board as before.
Conductors to patrol the trains in pairs
Conductors will patrol the trains in pairs helping and advising passengers and checking passengers’ tickets. In future, conductors will move through the trains instead of working only in ticket sales compartments. Conductors will walk through one train and then move to another. In the evening and at night, there will be conductors on all trains. Read more
