Changes from 1 January 2015:

The bus will run from the Kamppi long-distance terminal via Pasila and Viikki to Porvoonväylä and Uusi Porvoontie. The bus then continues along Uusi Porvoontie through Söderkulla to Porvoo. The bus will provide access to Pasila and the Meilahti Hospital. The bus will have some twenty services per direction Monday to Friday, eleven services on Saturdays and six on Sundays. The bus will run every 30 minutes in peak times and at other times on average every 60 minutes.
- U line 871 will be withdrawn. The route has only had three services a day from Helsinki to Porvoo.

Changes from 7 January 2015:
The timetables of bus 841 will change. New timetable
Services will be start to run every 30 minutes instead of every 20 minutes to improve the punctuality of the service.
On route 987B (Nikkilä – Pornainen), the 3.10pm service from Nikkilä (It. Jokipuisto) on school days starts to run via Laukkoski. The change is due to the completion of the construction of Mika Waltari School in Jokimäki.
