HSL area buses will operate a reduced summer timetable from Monday 20 April. The reason argued by the Helsinki regional transport authority is that "use of public transport has dramatically dropped because of coronavirus."

"HSL area buses will operate a reduced summer timetable from Monday 20 April. Extended night service will not operate, i.e. on Fridays, buses will operate a Mon-Thu service. A Sunday service will operate on Saturdays. School bus routes will not operate," the transport authority says in a press release.

The following routes will not run from 20 April until the end of the summer timetable season.

The metro, trams and trains will continue to operate to their current timetables. There will be changes to tram timetables on 4 May.

HSL emphasizes that the use of public transport has dramatically dropped due to the coronavirus epidemic. "With the reduced summer service, HSL is able to ensure as reliable transport services as possible in exceptional circumstances," the release says.

The new timetables are already available in the Journey Planner for trips after 20 April. Printable timetables will be available on HSL website around Easter.
