Helsinki Public Transport

One ticket for all modes of transport

Helsinki region has an integrated public transport ticket system. HSL’s tickets are valid on public transport services in Helsinki and in its surrounding regions.

The HSL area is divided into four zones and ticket prices are based on the distance traveled, i.e. on the distance from the center of Helsinki. Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, and Kauniainen form zones A, B and C, while Kerava, Kirkkonummi, Sipoo and Siuntio are in zone D.

You must buy a ticket for all the zones you travel through.


A few tips:

    • In your particular case, you will most probably only use the ABC ticket to travel from and to the airport and AB ticket to travel within Helsinki.
    • The same tickets can be used for traveling on buses, trams, the Metro, commuter trains and the ferry to Suomenlinna.
    • You can also transfer from one vehicle to another with the same ticket.
    • Single tickets are available from HSL app, bus drivers, ticket machines, as well as in advance from R-kioski or several other sales points.
