FINLAND - SWEDEN: free bus connection (Kemi-Tornio-Haparanda-Luleå)



In the north of Sweden and Finland there isn't a rail connection any more. but you can use free buses !!!

The buses always start in front of the rail stations and are connected to the rail systems... so if a train in delay, they normally wait for the train.
You always have a connection with the night-trains.


Luleå (Sweden) to Haparanda (Sweden - border station)
Tornio (Finland - border station) to Kemi (Finland)


At Haparanda/Tornio you change the bus. it is not complicate (800 meters to walk), other passengers walk this way as well. and you have a supermarket there.


UPDATE: http://www.raildude.com/en/train-connec ... sweden/223



Dep. Luleå: 0830, 1040, 1310, 1510, 1630, 1830, 2030, 2230
Arr. Haparanda: 1050, 1300, 1530, 1740, 1845, 2045, 2245, 0050
then you have 30 minutes time to walk.
Tornio to Kemi: between 25 and max. 45 minutes



Dep. Kemi: every 30 minutes
Arr. Tornio: between 25 and max. 45 minutes of bus travel
800 meter walk to Haparanda bus station
Dep. Haparanda: 0520, 0720, 1120, 1200, 1335, 1610, 1810
Arr. Luleå: 0740, 0940, 1340, 1435, 1600, 1835, 2035


:!: Attention: there is a difference of time between Sweden and Finland of 1 hour !!

Hi.

I only have the link to the official timetable available by the bus company running this route:
http://www.veljeksetsalmela.fi/KuKeHa.html

But I never had problems using a bus on this route connecting to one of the trains running the route Rovaniemi-Helsinki and back.

Sorry that I can't help you with more details for now.

Peter :)

Hi.
Check the websites of the bus companies mentioned above. Usually ony schedules until mid of June are online. But I think they will update it soon.
About single fares I can't give you details, only the information that InterRail is free between Kemi and Lulea.

I made a post in the Sweden section of this board, and I just copy it in here:

these are the timetables untill 18th of June. I write the departure and arrival times after the 18th June in brackets.

jens90 wrote:Hi,

the times aren't quite correct any more, probably due to time table changes

The bus leaves Lulea at:

8.20 9.50 10.50 13.00 14.00 15.10 16.35 18.40(18.55) 21.00(21.10)

and arrives in Haparanda at:

10.35 12.15 13.10 15.30 16.3517.45 18.50 20.55(21.10) 23.15 (23.25)

Some of the busses go on to Tornio, so you don't have to walk. Just aks the conductor.

Return:

dep. Haparanda:

4.40 5.20(5.30) 6.50 8.30 10.00 12.30 13.45 15.10 16.10 17.10

arr. Lulea

7.00 7.40(7.50) 9.45 10.50 12.35 14.50 16.10 17.45 18.45 19.45

At weekends, there are different timetables!!

Look at http://www.ltnbd.se/tidtabeller/ and then search for haparanda. Lines 20 and 100 do the journey.

I have a flexipass, and I was wondering, is this bus free as well if you don't use a day on your card? How much does it cost if it's not free?
Thanks in advance 8)

Hi!

The official rule is:

- If you get a "free" trip with 100% discount (such as this bus connection) you have to use a travel day on your Flexi Pass
- If you only get a certain discount (eg 50%) you do not have to use a travel day.

Lulea - Haparanda is 155 SEK/17€, Tornio - Kemi is 6,30€ - there is no online price information for the small bit Haparanda - Tornio but it wont be much extra, maybe 10-20 SEK. Or you walk on foot if the bus ends in Haparanda - it's just some hundred metres in between the two bus terminals in SK/FI.
