Travelling to Vaasa from Helsinki


I need to travel from Helsinki to Vaasa up coming September sixth. I will land around eleven AM in Helsinki. I would like to have some information about getting buses heading for Vaasa.

I recommend you to take a train for the journey, for timetables for trains see www.vr.fi/en/indez.html

For timetables of long distance buses, see http://matkahuolto.fi/en/

Any bus option will be hours slower than the train

If you choose to take the train and the schedules match, you can save some time and money by catching the long-distance train to Vaasa from the Tikkurila station which is closer to the airport than downtown Helsinki vr.fi/en/…tikkurilan_jatkoyhteydet_3.html .

The local bus 61 terminating at the Tikkurila station has a terminus at the airport. You have to pay cash for the ticket and the bus driver probably will not be able to provide change for larger than 20 euro bills - I recently saw this happening in Helsinki. After 11am you will be able to buy the train ticket over the counter in the Tikkurila station, but the alternative is using your credit card in a vending machine inside or outside the station - unless some vandal has trashed the machine.
