Kampin Keskus – a one of a kind bus station

The Kampin Keskus bus station makes traveling with public transport as smooth as possible. Since the Kamppi Center was opened in 2006 using busses in the capital region has gotten much easier. As a passenger you don’t just have the possibility to wait for your bus inside, get a good overview over the departures during the next hours and have an easy connection to the metro. You can also use the waiting time for some shopping or to get a snack or a cup of coffee at one of the many shops, cafés and restaurants. And you are not even bothered by the busses which are waiting behind the big glass doors.

Before Kampin Keskus was opened all busses leaving to western Helsinki and Espoo left from Narinkka Square outside. These days not only connections within the capital area but also to places all over Finland leave from Kamppi. Underneath the Espoo bus terminal lays the long distance bus station.

Building Kampin Keskus took four years and was always considered an ambitious and difficult project but in the end it was worth the effort.

Hyvää matkaa!
