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 10 August.

 

We recommend using a face mask

The start of school will increase the number of passengers on Föli’s buses, and although the timetables will be more frequent from 10 August onwards, it may not be possible to maintain a safe distance from others, especially during peak hours. We recommend all passengers to use face masks after the start of school from 12 August onwards. When possible, travel should be scheduled outside of peak hours. Read more.

Changes in traffic

Föli buses have run according to the midsummer timetables since April. On 10 August, almost all of the lines will switch back to more frequent school weekday timetables. On line 1, some of the additional departures normally operated during peak hours between the city centre and the harbour will not operate for the time being. 

Line-specific changes:

  • Line 1: The additional departures normally operated during peak hours between the city centre and the harbour will not operate on any day for the time being. Normal timetables will apply on the route between the airport and the harbour. 
  • Line 615 does not operate on Sundays or holy days.

Please pay your trip with a travel card or a mobile ticket

We recommend you to 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!). We gave up the use of cash in our buses from 27 March until the end of May. From 1 June, it is anyway acceptable to pay your ticket with cash.  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.
