Flexi ticket

Vainion Liikenne flexi tickets can be used for scheduled Vainion Liikenne services on the route and day marked on the ticket.

The ticket has to be presented to the driver at the start of the journey. We accept both paper print-out tickets as well as electronic tickets. The paper ticket is handed to the driver.

A ticket is personal and one passenger can travel on one ticket. Passengers must show proof of identity when presenting their ticket.

A flexi ticket does not include a seat reservation. There are no senior citizen or other discounts available for flexi tickets. We do not offer refunds or date changes for flexi tickets.

Matkahuolto’s CityCity ticket is a particularly cheap ticket type for journeys between certain cities and is suitable for those travelling on that route at least twice a month. More information is available on Matkahuolto website.

Travel cards

Those travelling regularly on buses make significant savings by buying a travel card. The card is available from Matkahuolto service points, and passengers can load more journeys on to the card also on board our buses.

A 44-journey annual ticket provides a 25 % discount compared to a single journey ticket. The card is valid for 12 months from purchase.

A 22-journey annual ticket provides a 15 % discount compared to a single journey ticket. The card is valid for 12 months from purchase.

Regional tickets are also available for various different regions. Regional tickets are personal and valid for 30 days from purchase. The ticket provides unrestricted travel within the region in question. The price of the ticket is dependent on the region. More information is available from Matkahuolto or at www.matkahuolto.fi.

Direct fare

When the journey includes a change of bus, the direct fare for pre-purchased tickets on journeys exceeding 80 km is priced on the whole journey. The direct fare for the whole journey is cheaper than tickets purchased separately for each leg of the journey. The tickets with changes sold on our buses are mainly only valid on our services.

Express services stop only in the places listed on the timetable and, when requested, on the express service bus stops marked by an express sign.

The special express services are faster than express services and stop only in places listed on the timetable.

You can play the radio on our services as long as it does not disturb other passengers. The radio must be turned off if even one passenger requests it.

Disturbances

All our passengers have the right to travel in peace. Our staff must be able to work undisturbed. The bus staff has the right to remove anyone causing disturbance if the person continues to do so after being requested to stop. If the passenger cannot be removed straight away, the bus staff has the right to hold on to the person until it is safe to do so.

Delayed or cancelled service

Passengers must take into account that difficult weather conditions and traffic congestion may cause delays to scheduled travel times. Passengers are also asked to note that there may be changes to schedules on public holidays.

Compensation due to delayed or cancelled services is handled and solved on a case-by-case basis. Customers must contact the bus company directly, if a potential delay or cancellation threatens to incur extra travel expenses to the customer.

The bus company does not take responsibility for additional damages which the passenger could have reasonably avoided.

The bus company is not liable to provide compensation to customers, if the delay or cancellation is due to a force majeure event outside the bus company’s control.
