Railways and long-distance buses

Helsinki is well connected to other Finnish urban centres and rural areas by trains and long-distance buses.

Helsinki Railway Station, designed by the internationally famed Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen and dating back to 1914, is a rail transport hub in the heart of the city, serving long-distance trains, commuter trains and the metro rail.

The Railway Station is also the terminal for trains to St. Petersburg and Moscow. The train ride between Helsinki and St. Petersburg takes about 3.5 hours thanks to recent service upgrades.

The online service of Finnish Railways VR allows customers to check timetables and buy tickets.

Helsinki’s long-distance bus terminal is underground in the downtown Kamppi commercial complex, below another underground bus terminal that serves local buses to Espoo. Operations at both terminals are largely automated, and both are directly connected to a metro-rail station.

Long-distance bus timetables can be checked and tickets purchased through Matkahuolto.

The national Journey.fi online service provides information on rail and bus connections, ferries and hiking routes in Finland. The service also includes local transport connections for 21 cities.
