HSL's pop up Travel Card service points for students open in August

HSL opens pop up service points for students at Helsinki University’s Kaisa Library and at the Aalto University in Otaniemi.

At the pop up service points, students can update the student discount entitlement on their HSL Travel Cards.  At the Otaniemi service points, students can also buy season tickets and value on their cards. The pop up service points do not sell new Travel Cards.  

All students are welcome to the temporary services points regardless of their institution of study. To avoid queues, update your Travel Card as early in August and possible and visit the service point in the morning; the busiest times are in the afternoon.

When you visit a service point to update your card, please bring with you your Travel Card and HSL’s student discount ticket application bearing the stamp and signature of your educational institution, or a student card approved by HSL (a blue SYL card, a blue SAMOK card, OSKU ry, Suomen Lukiolaisten Liitto, LYYRA) with a valid term sticker. In addition, valid digital student cards (FRANK) are accepted.

All students aged 30 years or over and those studying in liberal adult education programs in folk high schools must prove that either Kela or Åland Office of Employment and Studies (AMS) has granted them student allowance or Kela has granted them rehabilitation subsidy. Accepted forms of student allowance are study grants and/or government guarantees for student loans. The number of study grant months is the time within which the studies should be completen in the legislator's opinion.

I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
