Travelling with the commuter season ticket

The commuter season ticket now applies to the required route instead of the former zones.
 

When you buy a commuter season ticket, it must entirely cover the required route. The price of the season ticket remains unchanged and the ticket is valid only for the chosen fastest route.

You should buy the ticket for the longest route you use. All the stations on the chosen route are then usable as normal.

Acquaint yourself with the examples below and with the help of the map provided.

When to buy an extension ticket and what do they cost?

When you are travelling to a station which is not on your ticket’s route, you can buy an extension ticket (adults €2.60–10.60) on the train or from a service station. Discounts are granted for extension tickets, see discounts with commuter tickets.

 

Example:

If you have a season ticket for the route Järvenpää–Airport and you would like to travel:

  • to Helsinki, you need an extension ticket which costs €2.60 (adults)
  • to Lahti, you need an extension ticket which costs €10.60 (adults) and you can change the train on the Tikkurila station.

If you have a season ticket for the route Helsinki–Hikiä and you would like to travel:

  • to Lahti, you need an extension ticket which costs €4.60 (adults) and you can change the train on the Riihimäki station.
  • to the Airport, you need an extension ticket which costs €4.60 (adults) and you can change the train on the Riihimäki station.

If you have a season ticket for the route Lahti–Leppävaara and you would like to travel:

  • to the Airport, you need an extension ticket which costs €2.60 (adults) and you can change the train either on the Pasila station or the Helsinki station.
  • You don’t need an extension ticket when you are going to Helsinki, because the station is on your route.

 

If you are unsure of the applicability of the ticket, you can always ask a conductor or the customer service tel. 0600 41 900 (call rate: EUR 1.99 per answered call + local network charge)
