探索赫爾辛基市中心以外的神秘世界 Venture outside Helsinki city center!

我家離市中心的距離,大概是等同於從台北車站到烏來老街的距離。幸運的是家裡旁邊就有火車站(有氣質的慢走,不過5分鐘就到了喔),直達市中心20分鐘就到了。你參考看看下面的圖,在赫爾辛基的交通行政系統裡面,我家屬於B/C區。所以是屬於很接近市中心了啦!想想看,以前高中的時候從萬隆坐到台大醫院,也差不多是這麼久啊。有關赫爾辛基的交通系統跟車票,請參考Betty的細心紀錄

I live in Vantaa. Sometimes I am quiet confused about how much should I pay if I am going across regions. It’s easy to travel all the way to Helsinki city center, however it is another story to travel to different places other than Helsinki city center. The train tickets have been more expensive in 2015, see here for the newest prices. The official public website instructed that “Journeys within one municipality in Helsinki, Vantaa or Kirkkonummi are one-zone journeys. Espoo and Kauniainen as well as Kerava and Sipoo together form one zone.” So I guess that I don’t need to buy a cross region ticket if I am travelling from Vantaa to, for example, Kirkkonummi. But I am not sure.

For venturing within the Helsinki area, you might want to check here for ticket prices and rules.

地圖上面深綠色的部分是赫爾辛基屬於市中心的部分。Vantaa區裡面那個長相怪怪的倒V就是機場,

這張圖上你可以看到到底上面那些深綠色淺綠色灰色對應的站名是哪幾站。藍色的是赫爾辛基市內交通,綠色是Espoo市與Kauniainen市的市內交通,紅色的是Vantaa 市內交通,紫色是Kerava跟Kirkkonummi的市內交通,黑色的是芬蘭國鐵營運比較遠的站(表示你就算有交通卡也一定不能用,必須要另外買票),虛線的的所謂的第三付費區。

Okey, the blue stops are ‘Helsinki’s inner transportation’, the green stops are ‘Espoo and Kauniainen’s inner transportation’, the red stops are ‘Vantaa’s inner trasnportation’, the purple stops are ‘Kerava and Kirkkonummi’s inner transportation’ and the black stops are ‘Finnish National Train’s zones’. If you have regional ticket (seudunlippu), you can travel within the solid line area (for example, within Korso and Mankki). If you live in Espoo and only have regional ticket, but today you want to go to Sipoo, you probably need to buy regional 2-zone ticket, which “entitles you to travel in Espoo, Kauniainen, Vantaa, Kerava, Sipoo and Kirkkonummi. The ticket is not valid in Helsinki and it does not allow travel via Helsinki.” However if you need to go to Helsinki or go via Helsinki, you need region 3-zone ticket.
