The frost has also caused problems for buses due to difficult road conditions. In some places, the roads have become so slippery that buses have been unable to complete their routes.

In addition to buses, trains have also been canceled and delayed due to the frost. Many trains operated by the state railway company, VR, have also been canceled or delayed due to the icy conditions over the past few days.
