Major events after the end of the fiscal year
In January 2015, VR announced that it would close down the Turku depot by the end of the year. The work will be transferred to other maintenance units.
HSL and VR started negotiations on a new commuter rail services agreement for the transition period 2016-2021 before tendered services will start. The negotiations are based on an offer submitted by VR, which would generate substantial savings and would speed up the withdrawal of old rolling stock from service by the summer 2017.
