Pub Tram Tips (10)

Tram route 3T has changed to 2!

Tram 2 (used to be 3T) is one of the best ways to explore Helsinki with public transportaion. With this tram you can find many attractions from the "must visit in Helsinki list". Of course we can ask, what means "visit", but if you buy day/2day/3day card, you can just jump out in any stop and visit one of those places.

Warning. Most of the reviews tell that 3T is the route, but it's now 2.

According to Bobby Troup:

"If you ever plan to motor Helsinki, travel my way, take the tram route 2 that is best."

World's best trams!

Helsinki is known for the city's typical green trams! They are lovely. They fill up the streets and the sound of a tram in Helsinki is irreplaceable. There are about 13 tram lines in Helsinki. The stops are many, and it makes it very comfortable and smooth to travel with them.
Right now one is building about 40 (or more) brand new trams. They will be done within the next few years. I look forward to see how the look, and try them.
If you are in Helsinki, I definitely recommend the trams (as well as the metro) to transportation, or just for fun and sightseen. Good luck and have fun!

Trams are a cheap and easy way to get around

When in Helsinki, it won't take long to notice the vast track system that runs throughout the streets or to notice the big green boxes rolling along them. These are the trams and they are an excellent way to get around the city.

There are a number of different trams, all running different routes, so just find the one that's going to your destination and hop on.

If you've just gotten into the city, it'd be worth it to jump on the 3B or 3T - these both run in a circle around the most popular spots in town, so it's like a mini-tour for only the cost of one tram ride. Take note of where everything is so that you can either ride back to those spots later, or (since the town is small enough) probably walk back to them too.

Cost was 2.70 Euros for a ride, but I believe you can get a "day pass" for only slightly more to ride the tram as much as you want during a day. Not sure how much that costs though as I only rode the tram once (to take the 3T route around the city and back to my starting point).

3T TRAM

The 3T tram runs in a figure of eight around some of the top tourist sights of Helsinki.
We had purchased the Stockholm card, and used this on the Tram.
As it happened, we did sit on the right hand side of the Tram, which is recommended for checking tram stops and sites you are passing more easily.
Single tickets can be purchased from a ticket machine or from the Driver.

We thought it a cheap, excellent way to see the sights that were a little out of walking distance.
The 3T tram route starts and finishes on the corner of Kauppatori, the market square on the sea front and lasts about one hour without hopping off!

Tram Tourism

This seems to be pretty unique to Helsinki, I don't know if it exists in other cities. Their trams are clean, green, quiet and are a tourist attraction. The 3T line goes around the city in a big circle, and there are pamphlets in many languages explaining what you see at every stop along the way. So for the tram fare, you get a little self-guided tour.

Tram

Transportation in Helsinki is very reliable. Its cheap and on time. But only taxis are quite expensive. The schedule of the trams can be obtained from the stop itself and it's very frequent. Tickets are available at Kioski (similar to 7-Eleven) You can buy tickets that valid for a day or a week and so forth. Just ask the sales person what kind of ticket available. The Finns are quite helpful.

This is unique way to see...

This is unique way to see Helsinki. Take a PUB TRAM. The stop where you can step in is next to Railwaystation. The ride will take about 40 min and cost 7 euros from adult. In Pub tram you can take a pint of beer or cider and admire the scenery of Helsinki. Tram makes pretty long journey and you will see all the importants sights. This tram is used only summertime! The atmosphere in a tram is great.
