Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We usually travelled by tram or walk in Helsinki but I wanted to try the metro, too. We bought 3-days tickets. We went to Itakeskus, a Shopping Centre on the outskirts of town, so we tried it. It was clean and fast, there was no crowd, so we enjoyed it.

We had two metro trips: from Helsinki Central Station to Keilaniemi and back from Tapiola to Helsinki Central Station.

You pay by zones (AB, BC, or ABC) and can connect with buses, trams, and local trains in the same zones.

The most practical way to buy a ticket is using the HSL app. There are also ticket-selling machines.

Helsinki metro was opened in August 1982. Länsimetro, which opened in November 2017, expanded the metro lines from the city center to the west, via Lauttasaari to southern Espoo.

The Helsinki metro is served by two lines: M1 between Matinkylä and Vuosaari and M2 between Tapiola and Mellunmäki.

The line will be continued to Kivenlahti Espoo in autumn 2022 or in early 2023. The building works are ready but the testing is still going on.

Fast, convenient, clean... Many other cities should send their public transportation officials here to see how to do it right.

The best thing to happen to folks without cars. The Metro is reliable, efficient, clean, and mostly has plenty of free space.

The budget for the metro network extension to Espoo was huge and included also artworks to make the underground journey brighter. It seems odd that it had to be excavated deep down west of Helsinki under Espoo's open fields when the line to more inhabited east travels on the ground. The tall girl greeting travellers at Tapiola station by Kim Simonsson is called "Emma leaves a trace" as an invitation to the namesake Espoo Museum of Modern Art. At Keilaniemi the large hanging structure has been made of plain neon light sticks, the Niittykumpu station walls are covered with bright panels.

If you need to travel somewhere in Helsinki or Espoo or Vantaa, many places you can reach every 3-5 minutes by metro. Not too expensive, 2,80 € AB-areas.

Helsinki metro is one of the best and most convenient metro systems I have seen. The whole system is easy to figure out and you cannot get lost. You get from the center to Eastern Helsinki or even to Espoo`s mall Iso Omena. Clean, safe, comfortable.

Once you figure out your directions and which stops you need this is very easy for a non-Finish person to use. Not to mention how safe this city is. You can travel anywhere at anytime and be safe. Most people speak English if you get lost and will try to help you out.
