Smoother travelling

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

Travel more, worry less

Trips including 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.

New last mile connections are first introduced in the VR Matkalla mobile app.

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

Making day trips has never been so easy! Leave your car in the park-and-ride area and travel more smoothly between cities. With a valid train ticket you will receive up to 12 hours of either free or very affordable parking time at selected stations.

The goal of VR’s 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 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 why we came up with last mile connections: 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.
