Cutting back on our services

From 15 March 2021, we will be cutting back on our services due to low demand.

From March 15, 2021, we will further reduce services due to low demand. Once demand picks up, we will resume all suspended services promptly. The cancellations do not apply to night train services, railbus services or the regional transport of Southern Finland.

The cancelled services will be displayed on the VR Matkalla app and at vr.fi and ticket vending machines as closed services you cannot purchase tickets for. You can always find reliable information about the timetables for your route through the trip search.
