HSL’s transport service plan 2019: new trunk routes launched

Helsinki Region Transport HSL will continue to expand its trunk bus network in 2019. Route 500 between Itäkeskus and Munkkivuori will replace route 58 in August at the start of the autumn timetable period. At the same time, route 510 between Herttoniemi and Westendinasema will replace route 551. The purpose of these trunk routes is to make travel both faster and more punctual.

More services will be added on elsinki bus routes 55, 56 and 57. Route 56, Kannelmäki-Kalasatama, will begin operating at weekends.

The most significant change in commuter train services will be the merging of the K and N trains at the start of the autumn timetable period. The new train will be identified by the letter K, and like the N train, it will also stop at Käpylä, Pukinmäki and Oulunkylä.

No significant route changes have been planned to tram services, but after the public transport terminal in Pasila opens in the autumn, the termini for trams 2 and 7 will be moved from Länsi-Pasila to Pasila Station.
