How to get to NTDF Master Classes 2013

From the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (Helsinki Airport) to Helsinki Metropolia University:

Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences: http://www.metropolia.fi/yhteystiedot/hameentien-toimipiste/
Hämeentie 161, Helsinki
PO BOX 4040, FI-00079 Metropolia
Tel. +358 40 196 2818
FINLAND

There are basically 2 options:
OPTION 1 – bus 615/620 & bus 68 and 71
OPTION 3 – By Taxi

OPTION 1 – bus 615/620 & bus 68 and 71

By bus: First take the airport bus number 615 or 620 (prepare cash 4,5€ – ticket will be valid for 1 hour) direction to the Helsinki central railway station and get off there – it’s the last stop –. Then take the bus number 68, the stop is located right in front of the railway station building – Rautatientori –. Get off at Annalantie’s bus stop (11th stop after railway station stop).
The Master Class starts at 9 AM, so we suggest you to take bus which leaves from Rautatientori at 8:17. It will be at Annanlantie at 8:35.
Finally just walk about 200 meters in the same direction as the bus goes until you’ll arrive at Helsinki Metropolia University, at Hämeentie 161. See the map.

Meeting point at the university: Room H146

OPTION 2 – By Taxi

By Taxi: There is also the Airport Taxi –a specific taxi company with yellow cars (or minibuses) that fits around 9 people– it costs 30 euros for 1-2 persons. The idea is that the taxi drives several people to their destinations at the same time. The Airport taxi is yellow and has the text: “Yellow line” written in front of the car. Here’s the website with information in English:http://www.airporttaxi.fi/tietoa_en.html.

There are basically 2 options:
OPTION 1 – bus 615& bus 102-166 towards Espoo
OPTION 2 – By Taxi

 

OPTION 1 – bus 615& bus 102-166 towards Espoo

By bus: At the Helsinki Airport, take the bus number 615 direction Helsinki central railway station. You’ll find the bus’s platform very close to the terminals’ exit doors (around 50 meters) you’ll arrive at the platform just after crossing the street.
As there are two terminals, the bus platform is number 2 at the T1 terminal and number 21 at the T2 terminal. It should be very easy to find 🙂

You can buy a ticket from the driver. The correct ticket is Region ticket (Seutulippu), which costs 4,50 €, is valid all the way to Hanasaari.
Once in Helsinki, get off at the Helsinki central railway station and find the bus station situated in Kamppi, which is located at around 500 meters, walking distance. If you prefer, there is also a metro going from the Helsinki central railway station to the bus station in Kamppi.

Once at the Kamppi bus station, find the platforms 42-55 where buses towards Espoo leave. All these buses go via Hanasaari, the buses numbers are 102- 166.

Hanasaari’s bus stop is the second stop after Kamppi, the trip takes approximately 10min. Then there is some 500 meters to walk from the bus stop to Hanasaari.
