HSL will launch a new commuter bus route 617 to ease commuting to the airport and the surrounding area. The bus will run between Hakaniemi and Helsinki Airport every 30 minutes at peak times. As the bus will run along Tuusulanväylä and Ring Road III, it will serve also the areas next to Ring Road III and Lentoasemantie. The new route will start running on 16 November 2015.
A detailed route description and timetables are available below.
“Route 617 will improve services available for commuters to the airport area. We believe the new route will be identified as a commuter route because it does not run to the city center, which is the typical destination for visitors. Hakaniemi is an excellent terminus with good access to all directions. Capacity on route 615 will be increased by introducing bogie buses,” says HSL Director of Public Transport Planning Department Tero Anttila.
