Changes to feeder bus services in East Helsinki from 10 August

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.

Comments

Whoever decided it would be a great idea to change the 78 bus route must have been taking drugs,the bus was always so busy now its dead,a 10 minute journey to work and school now take over 1 hour,and takes 3 buses instead of one,the new 560 bus stops are useless and connect with nothing,old people are trapped now in certain areas,did anyone actually plan this or did you shut your eyes and pick a route to destroy?
