O dear what a shame about the Helsinki metro. The extension in the west was many years late and the stations are shorter than others because at the time they started building the whole network would be driverless. They cancelled the automation project but are...More

The world's northernmost metro system was opened on 2 August 1982. First it served from Helsinki Central Station to Itäkeskus. Finally the western extension opened on 18 November 2017 after eight years of construction. Now the metro has two lines: M1 Vuosaari-Matinkylä and M2 Mellunmäki-Tapiola....More

Fast and reliable. Finally we have the metro extension and new stations. Lauttasaari and Espoo are now easier to reach. Stylish and clean new stations, some with interesting lightning.

We utilised it at different times, once early morning during what would be regarded as rush hour. We always found it uncrowded and comfortable. Fast and efficient with good frequency, we very much enjoyed sitting back and being whisked from one station to the next....More

It is very easy to use. It is included if you have a Helsinki Card. I rode it both directions for the central train station. Going west currently has fewer stations. I didn't pay attention and no english announcement about the last stop. We stopped...More

Given the small range, it covers, this is the easiest metro in the World. You cannot make a mistake! The metro takes you to the eastern side of the city. At the moment, the metro line is being prolonged to cover Espoo as well--let us...More
