There will be changes to feeder bus services in East Helsinki from 10 August. In Vuosaari and Mellunmäki, the biggest changes are due to the new trunk route 560, which will start operating on 10 August.
Trunk route 560 will create a new transport link from Vuosaari via Malmi station to Myyrmäki. As the route will also provide a feeder link between Rastila and Vuosaari Metro Stations, the routes of several other feeder services will change. You can read more about trunk route 560 here.
