Western lines 2024

Welcome to renew the lines of the western service area

The Western Lines 2024 planning was launched during the spring of 2022. The goal of the line renewal is to combine the bus and tram traffic in the western Nysse area into a compatible entity. At the same time, the service on other western bus lines will be renewed to match the service levels assigned to the areas. 

The new western service will be planned in 2022 and will be taken in to use during 2023-2024. Tram service between Santalahti and Pyynikintori will start operating in August 2023, and the aim is to operate to Lentävänniemi in early 2025.

Läntisen linjaston yksi tärkeimmistä teemoista on yhdistää bussi- ja raideliikenne toimivaksi kokonaisuudeksi.

Mobility survey 2022

In the spring of 2022, we carried out a mobility survey, which we used to map the mobility habits and needs of the western service area. Almost 1,400 responses were received in the mobility survey, and this survey has served as excellent basic information for the line drafts.

The principles of line designing

We also renewed the principles of line designing, which we will use in other line projects in the future as well. The most important themes in the service reform in 2021 were the accessibility of the center of Tampere, the minimization of overlapping lines and efficient interchanges.

The starting targets for the western service have been set to

  • make bus and tram lines mutually supportive services
  • improve the experience of using public transport
  • support sustainable mobility in a growing urban area
  • involve public transport users in the planning process.

The design principles and targets of the service were refined in March-April 2022 together with customers and stakeholders.

The design proceeds in stages

A draft of the lines will be published first, followed by different versions based on the development ideas and feedback received. You can familiarize yourself with the plans in a browser-based map service and give feedback on them at all stages of planning. If possible, we will also present the line at residents' events.

Indicative timeline

  • Summer 2022: Draft of the lines 
  • September 2022: Second draft of the lines
  • December 2022: Western lines, first plan

The lines will be finalized in January 2023, after which a decision will be made by the Regional Public Transport Committee. The tram route Pyynikintori - Santalahti will be opened in autumn 2023, but it will not yet have a significant impact on bus service.

The service level of the renewed western lines will be decided in January 2024 and will be introduced in stages during the summer season 2024 and the winter season 2024-2025.

What areas will the service plan cover?

A tramway is being built on the route Pyynikintori - Santalahti - Hiedanranta - Niemenranta - Lentävänniemi. The tram service will also have implications for the bus service in Lielahti, Niemi, Ryydynpohja and Siivikkala.

The reform of the western public transport service will also effect the areas of Epilä, Ristimäki, Tohloppi, Tesoma, Ikuri, Lamminpää, Haukiluoma, Myllypuro, Kalkku, Rahola and Villilä and in the entire area of Ylöjärvi. In these areas the service level will be analyzed based on the area's travel needs, available funding, municipal zoning and, among other things, transport and business policy objectives.

Läntinen Linjasto 2024 suunnittelualueeseen kuuluu Länsi-Tampere ja Ylöjärvi.
