Helsinki is served by about 120 bus lines inside the city and tens of regional bus lines. Over one hundred million bus rides are made in Helsinki annually.
Daily bus service starts in the early morning and continues to midnight – and beyond on many lines. The weekend service from the city centre to various parts of the city continues to early morning hours.
Buses run from the city centre to suburbs, between suburbs, and from housing areas to metro and commuter-train stations.
The Helsinki Metropolitan Area is served by several private bus companies. The operations are managed by Helsinki Region Transport, which hires the bus companies through competitive bidding.
Long-distance coaches from Helsinki to other parts of Finland operate from the long-distance terminal located on Level K of the Kamppi Center (Narinkka 3, 00100 Helsinki).
Tickets are sold by Matkahuolto at the long-distance terminal.
