Trips involving transfers
Single bus tickets of at least 80 km including one or no more than two transfers are prices according to the total distance travelled, if the cost of the trip calculated in this way is lower than the price of separate tickets for each leg of the journey. Since youth discounts include a range of options specific to individual localities and coach service operators, youth fares that include transfers are processed as separate trips regardless of the total distance travelled.
Discounts for tickets stored on the travel card
Discounts are calculated from normal Matkahuolto kilometre fares for adults.
