Who can travel on child-rate tickets?

The child fare, which is half the adult fare, is available for children aged 7 - 16 years. 

Children under 7 years of age can travel free of charge.

To be able to get a child-fare Travel Card, the child must live in the HSL area: Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Kauniainen, Kirkkonummi, Siuntio, Kerava, Sipoo or Tuusula. 

People aged 17 years and over need an adult-rate ticket. The Travel Card customer group must also be updated at a service point when a child turns 17. 

You need the following documents to get a child-fare Travel Card:  

  • Card user’s official identification document (a minor’s identity card or a Kela card without a photograph suffice to prove the identity of a child aged 7 - 16 years).
  • A certificate of domicile if you have recently moved

Age limits on U line services

On U line buses, children's single tickets are available for children aged 4 to 11 years, i.e. over 12s need an adult-rate single ticket. However, HSL’s age limits apply when passengers travel with an HSL Travel Card.
