A family in a train

Smooth and comfortable travel on long-distance trains in Finland

VR Long-distance Traffic is responsible for long-distance train journeys in Finland as well as the restaurant and café services during the journey.

We want to offer our customers the most comfortable, safe and environmentally friendly way to travel: comfortable and fast trains as well as a wide range of routes and services.

For our customers, it’s important that the train journey is easy and hassle-free. Passengers can, for example, work during the train journey. Stations are centrally located and travel times are getting shorter.

Restaurant services make travel more comfortable. VR’s long-distance train services are complemented by Avecra, which offers restaurant and catering services on trains and at train stations.

Improving the customer experience is one of our main goals. We want to make the journey hassle-free as well as solve disruption situations in a proactive and high-quality way.

The train is also the most environmentally friendly choice and a safe means of transport. In Finland, all passenger trains run carbon-neutrally.

We want to offer our customers the most comfortable, safe and environmentally friendly way to travel: comfortable and fast trains as well as a wide range of routes and services.
