Coronavirus is causing changes in Föli traffic and other services

We will keep updating this page with information on the effects of coronavirus on Föli services. Last updated 6 April at 6:55 am.

The spread of coronavirus has raised questions among Föli passengers as well. We are following the guidelines of the National Institute for Health and Welfare and other authorities in the matter.

 

Summer timetables in effect starting from 6 April 

Föli will switch to midsummer timetables starting from Monday 6 April. This switch to fewer departures will be made because of the fact that passenger numbers have decreased significantly as a result of schools and several workplaces switching to telecommuting due to the coronavirus. The midsummer timetables are the timetables of the school holiday period that are normally in effect from the beginning of June to the middle of August.

The timetables that will be in effect starting from 6 April are available in Föli’s journey planner

Summer timetable booklets will be available at the Föli loading and service points at the beginning of April. Some of the service points are closed for the time being due to the coronavirus situation, so please check the opening hours beforehand.

PDF timetables can be found on the Timetables page. If the summer timetable booklet shows two different weekday timetables for a line, the lightest blue timetable will be put to use on 6 April (date in the heading: 1.6.–9.8.). A few of the bus lines will have additional changes, which are listed below.

Changes that will apply after the switch to summer timetables on 6 April:

  • Night buses 28, 31, 33, 34, 36 and 82 will not operate at all for the time being.

Pay your trip with a travel card or a mobile ticket

We have given up the use of cash in our buses as of 27 March. Pay for your bus trip with a travel card or a ticket purchased via the Föli application. Please load the travel card in the online loading service instead of the bus (get to know our online loading service!). The measure aims to protect the health of both the drivers and the customers. Read more.

If your travel needs allow, you can schedule your trip outside of peak hours and thus reduce the number of human contacts. If you have flu symptoms, we recommend that you avoid using public transport.
