- Traveling information
- From airport to city center
The easiest way to get from Helsinki-Vantaa airport the city center is by taxi. This costs about 30-45 euros and takes half an hour.
Finnair city buses operate between Helsinki city center and the airport. A one way ticket costs about 6 euros. For the time table and map see: Finnair city bus timetables
Local bus number 615 also operates between the airport and Helsinki city center. And bus number 620N operates at night time. For timetables see: Local bus timetables
Both the Finnair city bus and the local buses have their final stops next to the central railway station, which is located within 1 km from hotels Radisson Blue, Scandic Hotel Simonkenttä and Sokos Hotel Torni.
- From city center to Kumpula campus
The Kumpula campus area is located approximately 5 km from the city center. The easiest way of getting there by public transport is either by bus or by tram.
Several local buses pass via the Kumpula campus area, including 75,77,731,732,734 and 741. Most of the buses depart from the east side of the central railway station (see map), these include 75,77,731,732,734 and 741. Bus 70T departs from Kamppi shopping center (map). The campus stop is called "Kumpula kampus" in finnish (map). For timetables and routes see: Local bus timetables
Trams number 6 and 8 pass by the Kumpula campus area. For details see: Tram timetables
