Helsinki has a very efficient public transport system. It consist of trams, trains, buses, ferries and the metro (underground subway system).

Access to Helsinki’s metro and trams is trust-based –  it is up to you to pay for your ticket before you use them. Random inspections are done and if you are found without the correct ticket you may face a large fine.

Currently, children under the age of 7 travel for free. So do adults who are travelling with a child in a stroller.
