Föli for first-graders

Lessons on public transport for first-graders

For many years, Föli has organised school tours to encourage pupils in first grade to take the bus and to teach them how to act on the bus. The school tour is called Föli for first-graders.

The presentation includes conversations and a quiz on public transport. The classroom will be staged as a bus, so children get to take an imaginary bus journey during the presentation.

Useful information for adults about Föli for children

Children ride on the bus at a discount

Children under 15 get the single ticket at half price, which means that the ticket price for a child is 1.5 euros, with cash payment on the bus €2. Tickets can be bought on the bus with contactless payment, from a ticket machine with a payment card or from the Föli application.

Children will also use travel cards with discounted prices. With a value card, the daytime fare for children is 1.10 euros. With a season card, 30 days costs 27 euros.

Children under 7 travel free of charge with a paying passenger or a passenger with a child in a pram.

School card

School cards for school transport are granted by the pupil’s home municipality under certain conditions.

The card can be retrieved from a service point with the pupil’s personal identity code.

If the pupil is entitled to school transport the next school year as well, a new application is not necessary and the card is updated automatically.

Out and about with a pram

Adults pushing a child in a pram can take public transport in the Turku region free of charge. There is room for prams, buggies and wheelchairs next to the middle bus door, but make sure you are not blocking the aisle.

The child does not need to be in the pram when boarding and travelling aboard the bus. In this case, make sure that the child is sitting safely on a seat. Get off the bus together or let the child step out first. The driver may not be able to see a child left alone on the vehicle due to the angle of the mirrors.
