Stored value ticket
The value ticket loaded on a travel card is intended for use by passengers who do not have access to the Trips and Tickets app available on the mobile phone.
The value ticket is valid until 30 June 2024.
The value ticket can be used to pay for the trips of one or several persons. The driver charges the value ticket for the trip to be made according to the carrier’s single ticket fare list, with the value loaded on the card decreasing based on the number of trips paid.
The value ticket can be used for trips of varying lengths and on most buses.
However, you cannot travel with the value ticket on OnniBus MEGA services or on local services in the Helsinki metropolitan area (Espoo, Helsinki, Kauniainen, Vantaa), or in Tampere and Turku. You can check the validity of your ticket in the Timetable Search.
Buying and loading a ticket
A new travel card can be bought at Matkahuolto service points until 30 June 2023. You can find your nearest service point in the Service Point Search by filtering on ‘Purchase travel card’.
