HSL’s trunk route network will expand with two new bus routes when route 58 is converted into trunk route 500 and route 551 into trunk route 510 from 12 August. The timetables and routes of the buses will not change but the number of stops served will decrease to speed up journey times.
The buses will be colored orange like other trunk routes. Passengers can also board the buses through middle doors. Later in the autumn, when the new Pasila station and public transport terminal are completed, the buses will be rerouted to run along Aleksis Kiven katu.
At the same time, night bus 551N running between Kamppi and Westendinasema will be renumbered 108N. The new route will run via the Tapiolansilta bus stops between Westendinasema and Tuuliniitty.
Changes to bus stops from 12 August
Routes 500 and 510 will not serve the following stops served by routes 58 and 551 along their shared section of route:
