Commuter services made into a separate unit
Commuter services were made into a separate unit within passenger services on 2 June 2014.
The aim is to increase the efficiency of operations and to increase transparency.
As part of the reorganisation, a total of 240 train drivers transferred to commuter services. The new unit also employs 400 train conductors and has approximately 50 administrative staff. The unit is headed by Topi Simola.
The roughly 900 daily train services aim to provide a smooth and safe public transport system for people living in the Helsinki region and in adjacent areas. The most important commuter services customer is HSL (Helsinki Region Transport), which purchases train services for the Helsinki region. Zone-based services from Helsinki to Karjaa, Riihimäki and Lahti are also part of commuter services.
