The cities and municipalities of Southwest Finland have efficient public transport networks, and moving around by private car is fast and smooth. Traffic jams are rare – or non-existent. Special arrangements are made as needed – a good example is the commuter coach from Turku directly to the Uusikaupunki automotive plant.
The Turku region public transport system covers Turku, Kaarina, Raisio, Lieto, Naantali and Rusko. There is a flat rate in the area i.e. the price is the same regardless of the length of the journey. One ticket is valid in the whole area. The public transport system of the area is called Föli.
Turku introduced a citybike system in spring 2018. The system under Föli comprises of 300 bikes, 35 fixed stations and three movable stations. The network of stations ranges from Kupittaa district across the city-centre to the port. You can rent a green citybike for one day or one week.
Carbon neutral Turku
Turku’s goal is to be a carbon neutral city by 2029, and smart traffic is an important part of that concept. Moving from one place to another will in the future mean above all walking, cycling, electric public transport and shared use of vehicles.
