Local Busses

A single ticket in the local busses in Joensuu/Kuopio/Savonlinna costs around €3.30. In Kuopio, the fare is more expensive on Sundays and at night time (€4.40). You can save some money by buying a bus card that suits your needs. If you need to take the bus daily, it is worth buying a monthly card with unlimited number of journeys. However, if you take the bus occasionally, a 10/ 20/ 40-fare bus card might be a better option for you. To buy the bus cards you need to buy a personal bus card , which you can then load with a monthly pass or certain amount of fares.

A few tips:

  • To make sure that the bus stops at the bus stop, please wave your hand to indicate the driver that you want to hop on
  • Timetables at the bus stops tell you when your bus leaves from the starting point of the route, not when it reaches the bus stop where you are standing
