Yesterday we bought a ticket for three days and nobody warned us of this ...

what´s the best way to get from city centre to Kontula today about 3pm?
Thank you

There is a list of bus services operating today above. The list is updated as new information is available so please check the list every now and then for possible connections. You can either walk from the city center to Pasila and take bus 58B to Itäkeskus and continue by foot. Or take bus 16 from Merihaka to Kalasatama and from there bus 58B to Itäkeskus. There are no buses (or Metro) from Itäkeskus to Kontula so you need to walk or e.g. get a ride.

There is now new information about some services operating from Itäkeskus. Check the list of services operating to see, if you can use some of those.

Hi, I need to know if bus 102 / 102T from Kamppi to Otaniemi is running, and also the 195N

Information about bus services possibly running will not be available until tomorrow morning. The information will be posted on this page as soon as available.

What's the situation from Itäkeskus to City Centre? Information would be appreciated. :-)

There are no public transport services tomorron in the whole region. The Metro does not run at all. Information about any possible bus services running is not available until tomorrow morning.
