Pay with a travel card

Order a travel card in advance from the online service. The delivery time of the card is 1-2 weeks. If you need a card to use faster, buy it from Nysse's customer service.

Buy a value ticket or a season ticket from the online service at least 2 hours before the trip, so that the ticket can be loaded onto the card with the ticket machine on the station platform. Tickets that can be loaded onto the travel card are also available at Nysse sales points.

Buy a ticket from Nysse Mobiili

Download Nysse Mobiili to your phone from the app store. You can register for the service, but you can also use it without registering.

Pay for the ticket purchase with a Visa, Visa Electron or Mastercard payment card, MobilePay or mobile payment. Nysse Mobiili's single ticket, day ticket and student season ticket start from the moment of purchase, so it is best to get the ticket only a moment before your journey.
