Did you know that there are almost 70 train stations in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, located 5-15 minutes from your front door? Also, in Riihimäki you are instantly at the station by bike.
By switching from cycling to train, you also take care of everyday exercise and the climate. You’ll probably also save money when you don’t pay for gas or parking.
To make cycling easier, Helsinki has brought bicycle parks and frame-lockable racks to local train stations. You can leave your bike in the racks at the station and continue smoothly by train to work.
In Espoo, rail traffic is being developed strongly. Combining cycling with train and metro travel, in the future also with light rail, enables a smooth travel chain.
Take the city bike for 35 euros for the whole season or ride your own bike for free.
