ON JANUARY 1, 2024, the inspection fee for public transport in the HSL area will be €100, compared to the current fee of €80.

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Transport and Communications decided to amend the regulation on the inspection fee for public transport in the HSL area. The ministry considers that the increase to €100 is proportionate to the increase in ticket prices.

“This is a very welcome decision. Ticketless travel costs us up to €40 million euros in lost ticket revenue every year, and we want to do everything we can to reduce ticketless travel,” said HSL CEO Mika Nykänen in a statement.

HSL’s ticket inspection is based on the Public Transport Inspection Fee Act.
