Buy your ticket in advance
You need to buy your ticket in advance: please ensure that the ticket has arrived on your HSL Mobile ticket app before you board the vehicle or enter the Metro or Suomenlinna platform area. Please note that you enter the Metro platform area when you get on the escalator after having passed the Travel Card readers. The beginning of the platform area is marked with a yellow line. If you have not ordered or received your ticket before boarding the vehicle or entering the Metro or Suomenlinna ferry platform area, you may be charged a penalty fare.
Mobile tickets are valid for 80 minutes from the moment of purchase, with the exception of Extended region 3 tickets, which are valid for 100 minutes.
Single tickets are charged via card payment to your Visa or MasterCard (debit/credit) or via mobile payment to your phone bill. Charging to phone bill is possible with subscription of Elisa, Sonera, DNA and their subsidiaries, provided you have the right to charge purchases to your subscription’s phone bill and your phone is connected to a mobile data network. If you are connected to a wireless local area network, you cannot pay via mobile payment.
A valid ticket is green. When the ticket expires, it turns red and white. You can complete your journey but not transfer to another vehicle. The primary color of expired tickets is grey. When traveling by bus, show your ticket to the driver. When traveling by train, the Metro, tram and the Suomenlinna ferry you must show your ticket to a ticket inspector or conductor upon request. Keep the app open or let it run in the background as long as you need the ticket. Please ensure also that the time on your mobile phone is correct.
