The Ice Hockey World Junior Championships culminate with the finals on 4-5 January 2016. For those who want to watch the games live on the spot, public transport is an excellent way of getting there. HSL is the Official Partner to the Championships.
The Finnish team plays all their games at Hartwall Arena, which is easily accessible by train. All long-distance and commuter trains stop at Pasila Station, which is a short walk from the arena through an underpass. From the airport, the best way to get to Pasila is by P train. The I train will also take you from the airport to Pasila, but it takes a few minutes longer than the P train.
From Helsinki city center, the Arena can be reached also by buses 23 and 69 and trams 7A, 7B and 9, which stop by Messukeskus.
After the games where Finland is playing, HSL provides additional services from Hartwall Arena with buses number 30 and 50B. Bus 30 departs from Veturitie and takes the route Areena – Ruskeasuo – Töölön tulli, from where it returns to Hartwall Arena.
Bus 50B departs from the "Veturitie” bus stop on Hakamäentie and takes the route Arena – Pasila – Herttoniemi (M). Additional services will be provided after the games in which Finland plays, possibly including finals.
After the final on Tuesday 5 January, an additional train service will run from Pasila to Helsinki Central Railway Station. This train leaves from track 5b in Pasila at approximately 11.30pm.
