Transportation in Helsinki


Helsinki's compact size means it's easy to navigate on foot, and you won't miss any of the sights.


To explore some of Helsinki's further-flung attractions, try the city's metro system – it operates with typical Nordic efficiency. Get off at Sörnäinen for the happening neighbourhood of Kallio.


There's no getting away from the fact that taxis in Helsinki aren't cheap, but they are state-licensed and efficient, and many of the taxi drivers speak good English.

Rent your car

Helsinki has a three-tiered parking system, costing €2-€4 per hour. There are some traffic jams during the week in the city centre, so to avoid this you can opt for one of the park-and-ride sites and take public transport from there.

Transportation tips

Tickets for buses, trams, the metro and trains within Helsinki's city limits cost €2.20 pre-paid from a machine, and €2.70 onboard buses and trams, and last an hour once validated. Do keep to the speed limit when driving as it's rigorously enforced and fines are levied according to how many kilometres over the speed limit you were.
