Practical travel tips

Drivers do their best to get the passengers to their destination, but the flexible attitude of the customers also needed in the exceptional situation. If there is an important event in the City of Light which doesn’t allow you flexibility, it is efficient to consider a backup plan in advance, e.g. leave early enough.

One or two prams or strollers can fit in one car at a time. The place for the strollers are in the middle part of the car. If the stroller space in the middle section is full, no more stroller can be taken on board. It must be possible to ensure the safety andconvenient of passengers during aboarding, even in traffic.

If you have flu symptoms, please avoid traveling by public transportation: Using public transport while being sick or having flu symptoms is still not recommended.

Take your warm clothes with you. So the cold weather won't surprise you, even if Linkki arrives late. You should equiped yourself with reflectors for the dark hours of the evening. It is important to be visible at the bus stops and in the traffic. A convenient tool for checking the Linkki schedule is the electronic timetable and route guide at
