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.

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.

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.
