Summer time begins – changes in timetables

Finland transitions to summer time on Sunday 28 March with clocks moving at 03:00 a.m. from standard time to summer time, 04:00 a.m. The turning of the clocks will affect a couple of train services in the night between Saturday and Sunday.

Long-distance traffic

Night trains will move to a schedule later than normal when winter time transitions into summer time. Because of this, connecting services may have changes. You can find more information through our trip search.

Commuter traffic

Trains departing before 3 am standard time (winter time) will operate throughout the route from departure station to end station according to standard time. Trains that depart after 4 am will mostly be operated according to summer time.


After the transition to summer time on Sun 28 Mar the following trains will still be operated according to standard time:

  • L-trains from Helsinki to Kirkkonummi at 3.03 am and 4.03 am (4.03 am and 5.03 am summer time).
  • K-trains from Helsinki to Kerava at 3.21 am and 3.51 am (4.21 am and 4.51am summer time).
  • T-train from Helsinki to Riihimäki at 4.21 em (5.21 am summer time).
  • T-train from Riihimäki at 3.53 am will be operated according to summer time, meaning it will depart Riihimäki already at 2.53 am according to standard time (departing Jokela at 4.13 am summer time) and arrive in Helsinki at 5.09 am summer time.
