Getting around Helsinki

This year, we've partnered with Whim, a revolutionary transport service based in Helsinki, to offer you free transport in and around the city.

What? Free travel? Yes you read correctly! 😁

Whim will give out 20€ travel credit to all the #DTTTGlobal participants. Whether you want to explore the vibrant city of Helsinki by tram, metro, train or bus, it's easy to do it with Whim. 🚗🚕🚌🚇

You can get your 20€ travel credit from Whim either on your arrival at the Airport Welcome Desk from 10:00 to 18:00 on Wednesday or at #DTTTGlobal on Thursday and Friday. 

Travelling around Helsinki

Helsinki is a compact urban centre with modern and efficient public transportation offering incredible coverage. The distances within the city, and it’s character, make walking an attractive option for enjoying the urban landscape. While the easy availability of public transportation offers numerous options for exploring all that the city has to offer. You can choose between trams, metro trains, or buses to best suit your needs.

When you want to use public transportation, or make use of a quality taxi service, the Whim mobile app is the best and easiest way. Whim brings together all of your transportation options in one app. When you’re visiting Helsinki Whim is all you need.

What is Whim?

Whim is the first mobility as a service (MaaS) provider to bring together all the different modes of transportation. Instead of juggling a handful of tickets while bouncing around between different apps to plan your route, look up schedules, compare prices, find taxis, and navigate a patchwork of different transportation services, Whim allows you to plan your entire trip from beginning to end and purchase all of your tickets and services, all through one easy to use app.
Whim makes travel as easy as it possibly can be. Whim is currently available in the Greater Helsinki area in Finland, Birmingham in the UK, and Antwerp in Belgium.
In Finland Whim offers a number of options to best suit everyone. You can simply pay as you go or choose between two monthly packages, Urban and Unlimited.
