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.
