At the end of March (27 March) several traffic changes will be made to timetables, routes and trains. Passengers are advised to check the impact of these changes on the vr.fi website, by calling VR Customer Care or at any station well before travelling.
- On 29 March, VR will launch a faster connection between Turku and Helsinki. The train will depart from Turku at 7:08 a.m. and from Helsinki at 4:10 p.m. Passengers will arrive in Turku 20 minutes faster than before.
- In addition to the new Turku connection, Coastal line timetables will undergo major changes. The updated timetables also shorten travel times from Turku and Salo to East Finland by approximately 30 minutes, with faster connection times at Pasila.
Beginning on 27 March, the first long-distance train to Turku in the morning and last train to Helsinki in the evening will stop at Kirkkonummi. VR will provide bus transport between Kirkkonummi and Karjaa three times a day on weekdays. This bus service offers a convenient connection for Turku-bound trains. All tickets purchased in advance, including Season tickets and Multi-tickets are accepted on buses. Single tickets must also be purchased in advance, as there are no ticket sales on the buses.
- Allegro service to St. Petersburg is now even faster. The train no longer stops at Pasila, thus shortneing the travel time by nine minutes to 3 hours and 27 minutes.
- The Tolstoi departure time from Helsinki is now one hour later.
There will be several changes in commuter traffic timetables on 27 March. An entirely new timetable structure will be adopted for zone area traffic. Major changes are being made to departure and arrival times.
