Smoother commuter traffic in Pirkanmaa

Use the same ticket for the train and the city’s public transport

All the way with the same ticket

Travel on local transport and hop on a train with the same ticket. The cooperation between VR and Nysse extends in April 2022 to include the value ticket loaded on the Nysse card. Together with long-distance train services, the commuter trains in the Tampere region offer a green and fast public transport alternative that helps people travel throughout the entire region.

From April 4th 2022, VR's ticket cooperation with Nysse in the Tampere region will expand to include travel card value tickets.

What kind of trains can I travel on with Nysse tickets?

  • Nysse tickets can be used to travel in the Tampere region on both VR's commuter and long-distance trains.
  • The line ID for Tampere's commuter trains is M as in Manse. Some of the services run the whole route between Nokia and Toijala, while others only run between Tampere and Nokia or Tampere and Toijala. When the Tesoma stop opens, the M train will stop there as well.
  • In addition, there are R trains running between Tampere and Toijala, running the route Tampere–Riihimäki–Helsinki daily in both directions.
  • Several of VR's long-distance trains stop in Lempäälä, Tampere, Nokia, Tesoma, Orivesi, and Orivesi Center.
  • Even more Nysse tickets can now be used for train traffic in the Tampere region.

How to travel with a Nysse ticket
