HSL’s timetable booklets on sale from 28 July

HSL’s timetable booklets will be on sale from Monday 28 July at all R-kiosks in the Helsinki region. Also the HSL service points in Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa sell the booklets. The price of the booklet is €3. The charge covers part of the production costs. This autumn HSL publishes three timetable booklets: one for Helsinki, one for Espoo, Kauniainen and Kirkkonummi, and one for Vantaa, Kerava and Sipoo. Autumn timetables will come into effect on Monday 11 August and run until mid-June 2015.

“As the booklets will now be available at all R-kiosks in addition to service points, it will be easier for people to get a copy for themselves, in particular in Helsinki,” says HSL’s Director of Marketing and Communications Mari Flink.  In future, it will also be possible to order the booklet directly to your home from HSL's online store scheduled to open later in the autumn.

In addition to the timetable booklets, timetables are available free of charge through various channels. Timetables are available online at hsl.fi and in the Journey Planner that continue to gain popularity. The Journey Planner is HSL’s most important timetable service.

However, some passengers still prefer paper timetables. For them, in addition to the three-euro timetable booklet, HSL provides printed timetable leaflets available free of charge on buses and trams and at HSL's service points.

“The small charge is introduced to cover part of the production costs of the booklets with hundreds of pages. The booklets contain extensive information about HSL’s route network. Also, we strive to take environmental aspects into account in our activities and the switch from printed material to online services supports our environmental policy,” says Flink.

Sipoo and Kirkkonummi are an exception: there HSL will deliver a compact information package about new bus services, their routes and timetables to all households at the beginning of August. The bus route networks of Sipoo and Kirkkonummi are completely redesigned and HSL assumes responsibility for their bus services. In future, HSL plans and tenders the routes and procures the services. Information about the new route networks for Sipoo and Kirkkonummi are available also at hsl.fi.

Winter timetables are also available in printable format at https://www.hsl.fi/en/timetables-and-routes/printable-timetables
