Turku region public transport Föli will stop handling cash on buses to prevent further spread of the Omicron variant. The policy enters into force on Wednesday 22 December. This means that for the time being, a single ticket cannot be paid in cash on the bus. A journey can be paid with contactless payment (debit or credit card or mobile device), a travel card or a ticket purchased via the Föli application. Customers can also purchase single and daily tickets at all R-kioski shops located in the Föli area and Föli ticket machines, that can be found in Hansa shopping centre and ICT-City in Kupittaa, for example.

The mask mandate has been in effect on Föli buses since 26 November. On Friday 17 December the City of Turku tightened its mask policy. Due to the weakened coronavirus situation, passengers must wear a mask when using Föli public transport. Masks are not required for those under the age of 12 or for those who have a health-related reason not to use one. Föli will not require proof of any health-related reasons, informing the staff of the reason is enough. Föli drivers will also wear a mask when possible, taking health and road safety into account. Around a third of the Föli buses have a driver barrier, a plexiglass between the driver and the passengers.

As the corona situation has deteriorated, the way every person acts matters. In addition to wearing a mask, take care of personal hygiene by washing your hands frequently. You should also keep a safe distance to other passengers at bus stops. If travelling during peak hours is not necessary, you should schedule your travel for another time. The traffic in the Föli traffic area is at its busiest on weekdays approximately between 07:00 and 08:30 and between 13:00 and 16:30. It is generally quieter on weekends and on Christmas.
