When to purchase a supplement ticket and how much do they cost?

When you travel using a VR commuter multi-ticket or season ticket, you can purchase a supplement ticket when you travel to a station, which is not on your ticket’s route. You can purchase supplement tickets (adults 2.60–10.60 €) at a station’s ticket office. Discounts are given on the supplement tickets, see the commuter discounts.

VR’s supplement tickets shall be validated with a validator onboard the train and they remain valid for two hours. You can purchase as many supplement tickets as you wish in advance and they do not have a validity period. VR’s supplement tickets can only be used on commuter trains.

 

What other options do I have for continuing the journey?

We are testing a new option with HSL until the end of 2017. This option allows you to purchase an HSL single ticket for a supplement journey within the HSL area, if you have a valid VR commuter multi-ticket. If you wish to purchase an HSL single ticket, you must buy an HSL internal, regional, region two-zone or region three-zone single ticket depending on the journey such that it covers the entire journey in the HSL area. HSL single tickets can be used on all of HSL’s modes of transport.

In addition, you can continue your journey in the VR commuter services area by purchasing a VR single, multi- or season ticket, which are available on all of VR’s sales channels. Purchase the tickets easily with the VR Commuter application or at the online shop, beta.vr.fi.

 

Examples of supplement ticket use:

You have a VR commuter multi-ticket for the route Haarajoki–Tikkurila and you wish to travel to Helsinki. Your multi-ticket is valid for the journey up to Tikkurila.

You have two options:

  1. You can purchase a supplement ticket at a station’s ticket office and validate it with the train’s validator. The ticket will be valid for two hours from the moment of validation. Supplement tickets can be purchased in advance as their validity starts at the moment of validation. The supplement tickets purchased at a station’s ticket office can only be used on commuter trains, not for travelling by other modes of transport in the HSL area.
  2. Alternatively, you can purchase an HSL single ticket during the VR and HSL test, which lasts through 2017. If you wish to purchase an HSL single ticket, you must choose a regional ticket as you are travelling from Tikkurila to Helsinki. HSL’s single tickets are available on HSL’s sales channels (for example on HSL Mobile).

 

You have a VR commuter multi-ticket for the route Haarajoki–Tikkurila and you wish to travel to Järvenpää. Your multi-ticket is valid for the journey from Tikkurila to Kerava, because Kerava is on the route. Therefore, you must purchase a supplement ticket from Kerava to Järvenpää. You need a VR ticket, because the journey starts/ends within the VR area.

You have two options:

  1. You can purchase a supplement ticket at a station’s ticket office and validate it with the train’s validator. The ticket will be valid for two hours from the moment of validation. Supplement tickets can be purchased in advance as their validity starts at the moment of validation.
  2. Alternatively, you can use a VR single, multi- or season ticket depending on how often you need to travel from Kerava to Järvenpää.

 

You can purchase the single, multi- or season tickets from all sales channels, see purchasing commuter train tickets. Purchase the tickets easily with the VR Commuter application or at the online shop, beta.vr.fi.

If you are unsure of a ticket’s validity, do not hesitate to ask the conductor or VR Customer Care tel. 0600 41 900 (call rate: 1.99 € per answered call + local network charge).

Zones removed from tickets from 14 December 2016

In the future, single commuter train service tickets will indicate the departure and destination station and will be valid for two hours for the one way route selected. The old zones will remain for single tickets purchased on the train for the time being.

You may use commuter service multi and season tickets purchased before 14 December 2016 for travel in the zone areas marked on the ticket until the end of its validity period.
