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.
