VR Commuter

VR Commuter is a mobile application allowing you to purchase commuter traffic single tickets with a few clicks, using your Veturi user ID. The application works on iOS/iPhone and Android smart phones.

A single ticket is activated in connection with purchase and is valid for two hours from purchase in the direction the ticket is purchased for. The ticket is valid on VR commuter trains.

You can buy single tickets with the VR Mobile application for adults as well as discount tickets for juniors, seniors, students and persons in military and non-military service.

The following credit/debit cards are accepted by the VR Commuter mobile application: Visa, MasterCard, Visa Electron and Maestro cards.

You can also buy a single ticket without having to log into Veturi.

It is possible to buy all these tickets with VR Mobile as well. The application works on iOS/iPhone, Android and Windows smart phones.


Ticket offices

The commuter services area has five VR stations with a ticket office that sell commuter tickets: Helsinki, Hyvinkää, Järvenpää, Lahti and Tikkurila.

All types of commuter tickets can be purchased at the stations. Cash, debit cards, most credit/debit cards and Visa Electron and Maestro cards are accepted as means of payment. For the time being, Diners Club and Diners Club Discover cards cannot be used.

A Commuter Services single ticket is always the most economical when purchased before boarding the train.

You can check the opening hours for station ticket sales in the station services section on the stations’ own web pages.


Ticket machines

All commuter tickets can be purchased 24h/day from ticket vending machines. At VR ticket machines in the HSL area you can now load period or value on HSL travel cards.

You can check from station services information whether or not a ticket vending machine can be found at your station.

Pay for your tickets with most debit and credit cards and American Express cards.


Ticket sale on trains

Conductors sell only single tickets on trains.

Buy your tickets from commuter train ticket vending compartments. Check the location of the ticket vending compartment before boarding the train.

A ticket bought on a commuter train costs 50 cents more than one purchased from a ticket vending machine, the VR Commuter application or purchased in advance from R-Kiosk. If the station does not have ticket sales or a vending machine, the ticket is the same price as when purchased elsewhere.
