Dulcinea's Insight

  • Helsinki is the only city in Finland with a subway system. Public transportation in other cities consists mainly of buses.
  • Finland is a car-dependent country with a high-quality road and highway system. Renting a car may be your best option for traveling in places other than Helsinki.
  • ExpressBus is a bus service that covers the entire country and offers more routes than the train service. Unfortunately, its Web site, ExpressBus, is entirely in Finnish and of little use to the average reader. Keep ExpressBus in mind, however, if you are in Finland and looking to travel from city to city.
