Towards something new

More listening

Listen first, then develop. You have told us how we should improve our service, and now we are solving these issues one step at a time.

Increased smoothness

At this stop, we present you with the first versions of our new digital services. It was about time!

More yours

There are as many different journeys as there are passengers. This is why our services will in the future meet the needs of each passenger exactly where and when their needs emerge.

How will these changes affect you?

Why are all the new features not yet available in the new services?

It is important to us that we can make the new services available for our customers right from the beginning. We will add new features as soon as they are ready. We recommend that you allow automatic updates in your phone settings, so that you are always using the latest version of the application.

Can I still use the old mobile apps?

You can still continue to use the VR Mobile and VR Commuter applications as before. We will close the old applications only when we have the new features requested by our customers implemented in the new application.

Where can I buy the tickets that are not yet available through the new services?

All our sales channels will operate as before alongside with the new channels.

Why is the look of the new digital services different compared to the old ones?

Our new services have been designed to be easy to use and to respond to the current needs. The new colour scheme is fresh and it also works better for our customers who need accessibility.

Which tickets can I buy from the new vending machines?

From the vending machines, you can buy the most common tickets for commuter and long-distance traffic, as well as multi-tickets for commuter traffic. We have included the tickets that our customers most frequently buy from the vending machines. In the future, multi-tickets for long-distance traffic, season tickets, tickets for car-carrier trains, TrainBus tickets and tickets for Russian traffic can be bought through our other sales channels.

Will the ticket prices be increased with the introduction of the new channels?

No, there will be no price changes at this point. The Saver Ticket continues to be our cheapest ticket product, and it will be offered through all our new channels as well.

Where can I find Veturi-log in and benefits?

In the new services we no longer mention Veturi. The Veturi loyalty programme and the name itself will be gradually phased out, but you can still use your old and familiar user ID to sign in to all of our digital services: the change does not require any action on your part. You will continue to receive benefits related to your trip, for example in the restaurant car, by showing the "Messages" section in the VR Matkalla-app.
