We see that with technology we can make the accessibility and availability of the public transportation so attractive that it becomes an option for private car usage, and our mission is to combine public transportation companies as one ecosystem to make this real – if a car driver decides to leave the car at home every 100th time, it generates some 70 million new public transportation journeys in a year only in Finland. This is our stake on sustainability.
Our time tables cover over 95% of Finnish inter-city routes, and we are increasing new transportation operators’ ticket sales whole the time into our service. We have also expanded our service to cover Helsinki – St Petersburg routes, and thanks to our partners’ strong backbone network, soon the service will cover several other Baltic Sea countries.
