Waltti in ENGLISH


Lahti Region Transport (LSL) adopted the Waltti travel card on 29 February 2016. In use all over Finland, the card can be used to pay for public transport in cities such as Oulu, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Joensuu, Lappeenranta, Kajaani, and Kouvola.

With the Waltti system, public transport prices are determined on the basis of travel zones rather than kilometres travelled. With the zone-based pricing, which LSL buses began using for single tickets also on 28 December 2015, the LSL transport region is divided into nine travel zones

You can choose between a personal and a multi-user card. If a personal travel card is lost, the value or season remaining on it can be transferred to a new card at the Lahti-Piste service point, at the Central Library. Any value or time remaining on a lost multi-user card cannot be transferred to a new card





You can load time on your travel card, for unlimited travel during that period within the zones you selected. The time is personal, and this ‘season ticket’ must be for at least 30 days. The price of the season ticket is the same for all passenger groups (children, young people, students, and adults). You may also load value (5–500 euros) on your Waltti card. With the card, the ticket price is approximately 25–35% lower than for a corresponding single ticket.

All the ticket types entitle you to transfer from one bus to another within a set time period. The travel zones and the transfer time for which your ticket is valid are printed on the ticket. The transfer time is calculated from the moment you buy your ticket or stamp it on the bus.
