Smoother travelling

VR’s first and last mile connections make it easy and environmentally friendly to travel to your destination

Travel more, worry less

Trips including first or last mile connections consist of multiple modes of transport. For example, you can first travel by a long-distance train and then continue your journey on a local bus or rented car. Mix different modes of transport and travel flexibly – from your front door to your final destination.

Hop on HSL public transport

Planning to travel to the capital region? You can buy a train ticket and an HSL single ticket at the same time in the VR Matkalla app. Having all of your tickets in one secure place makes travelling smoother.

Continue your journey on rental car

Do you have an important business trip or weekend getaway plans coming up? Leave your car home and travel easily by train and rental car. Spend your time in the train as you please and continue your journey with the freedom offered by a rental car.

Smooth parking

Our park-and-ride service makes both commuting and weekend trips easier! Leave your car in the departure station’s park-and-ride area and travel seamlessly between cities. When you have purchased a train ticket, you can park at selected stations for free or very inexpensively for up to 48 hours.

Climate

The goal of VR’s first and last mile connections is to provide services that allow you to leave your own car at home. These services use trains and other modes of transport and help reduce the overall use of private vehicles and their CO2 emissions. Get to know our different options and see what kind of first or last mile connection would suit you - and our climate - best.

Connecting the whole journey

Trains are one of the best modes of transport, but reaching the station or your final destination may sometimes be troublesome. This is where the idea for first and last mile connections came from: travel arrangements for multi-stage trips that make travelling to and from the station easier for you. Now you can enjoy both the comforts of train travel as well as a smoother overall journey.
