Helsinki is the best travel option across Helsinki and west Espoo. It is arrives and leaves on time. Very clean and safe. The metro route is the most simplest and straight route I have ever seen. Free WIFI is available on board.

Helsinki Metro runs from East with two end stations there: Mellunmäki and Vuosaari. In the west last station is Matinkylä. These newer stations in the west have something to give to your travel experience. Lauttasaari & Koivusaari have long escalators to surface, with glass wall...More
