“Ukikyyti is a flexible form of public transport, an easy and high-quality alternative to private cars in Uusikaupunki, where there has been no regular public transport before. Despite the coronavirus, all our expectations regarding the number of users have been exceeded. According to a customer survey, the majority of users feel that Ukikyyti has made their daily life significantly easier.”
