Public transport services will switch to summer timetables on Monday, said a press release of City of Helsinki.

Preparations are going on to install new timetable posters at stops. At transport nodes and terminals, new timetables will be installed just before the changes takes effect.

New printable timetables are already available. In addition, the new timetables area available in the Journey Planner after June 17 June.

There will be some changes to bus stops and routes.

“Yhdyskunnantie” bus stops on Tuusulanväylä will be opened on 17 June. The new stops will make it easier to interchange between buses operating along Tuusulanväylä and trunk bus 550.

Bus routes 58, 80, 92 and 92, as well as trunk route 550 will be diverted  in Roihupelto because Varikkotie will be closed to traffic.

In addition, trunk route 550 will be diverted in Oulunkylä to run along Siltavoudintie because Norrtäljentie will be closed to traffic. These route changes are related to the construction of the Jokeri light rail line.

This year, buses 348BK, 349B and 349BK will, for the first time, operate also during the summer months.

There will be minor changes to neighborhood routes 701, 702 and 802 in North East Helsinki and Laajasalo.

There will be no major changes to train services. Commuter trains E and Y will be cancelled on weekdays 24-30 June as well as 15-28 July due to track work.

There will be no major changes to train services also. In Pasila, tram routes 2 and 7 will be diverted and their services will be partly replaced by bus 2x. In addition, the terminus of tram 1 will temporarily move to Kolmikulma in early July.
