We will reinstate some train services between Pori and Tampere from Wednesday 28 February

All train services between Pori and Tampere have had to be replaced by bus services from Wednesday 14 February due to maintenance and repair work on our fleet caused by track damage. From Wednesday 28 February, the replacement bus services will be supplemented by train services. There will be four daily train departures in each direction. The aim is to return to normal services and frequencies by Easter.

Bus services between Pori and Tampere will become less frequent next week when some of the train services between the cities will be reinstated.
