Filming in HKL premises and vehicles

Filming at a depot, the metro stations outside of their opening hours and assisting personnel

More demanding filming processes (such as movies, TV series, advertisements and different kinds of videos) on trams, metro trains, metro stations or ferries must always be agreed in advance with HKL Helsinki City Transport, because in most cases HKL’s facilities and staff resources are needed.

We request that filming crew work in a manner that disturbs passengers’ journeys as little as possible. Therefore filming crews should be as compact as possible. HKL also recommends that filming does not take place during peak traffic hours 7–9 am and 3–5 pm on weekdays. Remember also to have a valid public transport ticket when on board or at the metro station within a paid area. Further information www.hsl.fi/en.

Utilising HKL premises as venues

HKL owns and manages metro stations and public transport stops as well as metro trains and trams, and thereby it also makes decisions about allowing third parties to utilise these premises as venues.

HKL can also participate in the event production as a partner and this way allow the premises to be used as a venue. In general, HKL does not permit the use of any premises managed by it for purposes of marketing or promoting any private company, commercial product or ideological/religious or political view. Premises are also not rented for these purposes, excluding the hiring of trams or metro trains for the listed price for charter transport, in which case marketing is possible.

Inquiries about charters: tilausajot.hkl@hel.fi If you wish to organise an event in HKL’s premises, please contact HKL well in advance, depending on the extent of the arrangements, esiintymiset.hkl @ hel.fi.

In regard to sheltered stops, the organiser should also seek approval from their owner, JCDecaux outdoor advertising company. HKL prefers its premises to be used for purposes that promote the liveliness of the city and the comfort of passengers, and for non-commercial activities that are possibly already supported by the City of Helsinki. However, HKL does not automatically approve event requests, as HKL’s amounts of work and costs must be evaluated separately for each event. In addition to this, HKL must also take impartiality towards different organisers into account. In most cases, approved events may utilise the premises free of charge. HKL will also not compensate the event producer for any costs.
