New zone system revolutionizes ticket pricing in the Helsinki region

New zone system revolutionizes ticket pricing in the Helsinki region

During spring 2019, HSL (Helsinki Region Transport) will be implementing a new zone system which will fundamentally change public transport ticket pricing in the Helsinki region. In the new system, the HSL area will be divided into four zones (A, B, C and D) independent of municipal boundaries, spreading out from Helsinki center. Ticket prices will be based on the distance from the center of the capital city.

The new model reflects the reality of public transport in the Helsinki region where journeys across municipal boundaries are part of the everyday life. Short journeys across municipal boundaries have been expensive relative to the distance traveled. Ticket names will be easier to understand; instead of internal and regional tickets, there will be tickets for four zones. The new system is easy to expand if new municipalities decide to join HSL.
