Pasila station closed on 19 June: Pasila temporary station serves passengers
New routes will be in use as of Monday 19 June 2017, as the old station will be closed for passengers permanently. The temporary Pasila station will continue serving the passengers as it has since 4 April.
Passengers travelling via Pasila are requested to pay attention to changes in the routes and to follow the signs at the station. For example, the route from the Opastinsilta Bridge to the Pasila station square will be closed as both the old station and the square in front of it are part of the construction site.
Temporary Pasila station
Three VR ticket machines are available at the temporary station and tickets for VR can also be bought from the R-Kioski opened at the station. The station will also serve as a waiting area. Pasila station's drop-off/pick-up point, taxi point, bicycle parking and assistance point will be located at the temporary station, in Veturitori.
The exceptional arrangements will apply until the autumn of 2019, when the new Pasila station and Mall of Tripla will be finished.
