There will be changes to HSL commuter train services from the start of the winter service period on Monday 10 August. U trains running to Siuntio will become X trains. The change will simplify the train letter codes as in the future, all trains serving Siuntio will be designated by letters X and Y and U trains will terminate at Kirkkonummi.
There will also be changes to the commuter train headways on the Main Line and on the Ring Rail Line on weekday and Saturday evenings due to financial adjustment measures. VR commuter trains, i.e. R, D, T and Z trains, will revert to their normal headways from 10 August when the bridge work underway in Pukinmäki is completed.
Train timetables from 10 August are available in the Journey Planner as well as in the printable timetables (Link to the timetables)
