Metrojuna Itäkeskuksen asemalla.

By metro

The metro is a smart way to travel on any day, from the morning to the evening.

Quickly, reliably, ecologically

The metro is the fastest and most frequently operated means of transportation in the capital city area. The Helsinki Metro is easy to use: there are only two directions, east and west. The track parts into two in Itäkeskus. The trains travel to Mellunmäki and Vuosaari in turns.

During rush hour, the metro operates between Tapiola and Itäkeskus at intervals of 2.5 minutes, and at intervals of 5 minutes on the routes Itäkeskus-Mellunmäki, Itäkeskus-Vuosaari and Tapiola-Matinkylä.

Currently, the metro line consists of 25 stations, 19 of which are in Helsinki. The remaining six are in Espoo. The oldest section of the metro line has 17 stations. There are eight stations in the new section from Ruoholahti to Matinkylä, and later on there will be five more, when the line from Matinkylä to Kivenlahti is completed.
