Train timetables are always available in the Journey Planner four weeks ahead.

Reduced K train service and changes to R and Z trains 15 June to 9 August

K trains will operate a reduced service in the summer due to bridge repair work in Pukinmäki.

At peak times, there will be two R trains per hour; off peak and on weekends R trains will run every 60 minutes. There will also be changes to Z train services.
