HSL ticket pricing changes in April
Did you know that the pricing of public transport tickets in the HSL area will change on 27 April? The new zones (A, B, C and D) will replace the current fare zones based on municipal boundaries. The Journey Planner and HSL app will both tell you which ticket you need for the route you have selected. At stops, the zone is shown on stop signs. All season tickets that expire after 27 April will be automatically converted into zone tickets. If the new season ticket does not meet your travel needs, you can change your ticket at a service point within two months from the introduction of the new system.
If you still have green Travel Card, you can replace it with a new blue HSL card before 27 April for free as well; after that, a processing fee of 6 euros will be charged. Online top up of HSL cards will become available at HSL.fi after the introduction of the new zones next autumn.
Another big change happening at the same time is that the age limit (30 years) for receiving student discount and requirement of a student allowance will be removed. In addition, students will get a 45% discount on season tickets; the discount will no longer apply to value tickets.
