HSL has concluded agreements with several municipalities surrounding the metropolitan area on the basis of which the residents of these municipalities can purchase HSL area tickets at the same price as permanent residents of the HSL area. The agreements have been concluded with Hanko, Hausjärvi, Inkoo, Karkkila, Lohja, Mäntsälä, Nurmijärvi, Pornainen, Porvoo, Pukkila, Raasepori, and Vihti.
The connection passes for the residents of the surrounding municipalities are personal season tickets for adults that are valid in the following areas:

NB! The agreement does not include 2-zone and 3-zone extended regional tickets.
Connection passes are loaded on HSL’s personal Travel Cards which are available from Travel Card service points. The customer’s home municipality and customer group information, on the basis of which purchase rights of tickets are determined, is stored on the card at the service point. HSL area tickets for the residents of the surrounding municipalities are available only for adults (17+), not for children, school children, students or other special groups.
Connection passes can be paid using commuter vouchers. Employers can also conclude an invoicing agreement for paying the tickets if they wish to pay the employer-subsidized commuter tickets of their staff in full.
Travel Cards can be topped up at any of HLS’s sales points, for example at R kiosks in the HSL area or ticket machines.
The validity of the tickets does not depend on the validity of the train or bus pass into which the connection pass is attached. Instead connection passes can be purchased flexibly for the desired period of time between 14 and 366 days.
