1. You must pass an authentication check through the Finnish National Agency for Education.

2. You must be 18 years of age or older.

3. When purchasing the Student HSL 30 day season ticket, which includes the HSL 30-day ticket, you will need to authenticate – either with bank credentials or a mobile certificate. This will also verify your city of residence. Your permanent address must be in one of the HSL municipalities: Helsinki, Espoo, Kauniainen, Vantaa, Kerava, Sipoo, Tuusula, Kirkkonummi, or Siuntio (or in of one of the neighboring municipalities listed here: Hanko, Hausjärvi, Inkoo, Karkkila, Lohja, Mäntsälä, Nurmijärvi, Pornainen, Porvoo, Pukkila, Raasepori and Vihti).

4. To authenticate, you’ll need to log in with your HSL account. The purchase process will direct you to the HSL service automatically, where you’ll either need to log in to your existing HSL account or create a new one.

5. It is not possible to have an active season ticket on an HSL travel card or in the HSL app. If you do, simply use your existing ticket until it runs out, and then activate the 30-day ticket through Whim.

You cannot transfer the existing time from a card or the HSL app to Whim.

If you have loaded an HSL travel card with value – as opposed to time – this will not prevent you from getting the 30-day ticket through Whim, and it won’t affect the value on your card.

  • Log in to the My Studyinfo service using strong authentication.  
  • Give the Finnish National Agency for Education permission to disclose your information to HSL.  

1. Download Whim

2. Sign up and fill in the profile and payment method.

3. Select the Whim Student subscription and the desired HSL zone.

4. Go through the HSL authentication flow, if not done earlier.

5. If the HSL confirmation is successful, you will be redirected back to the Whim app. The order will be activated immediately after the payment has been confirmed or on the next renewal date depending on which plan the user is currently.

You don’t need a separate travel card, or to buy individual tickets. If you’ve got a valid HSL 30-day regular or student season ticket and your mobile with you, you’re good.

HSL 30-day season ticket is valid on the familiar transportation services: buses, Metro, trams, ferry, and commuter trains in the HSL area. To use a HSL 30 student ticket, you must be eligible for HSL 30 ticket.

HSL season ticket is shown in the ticket view in the app. Tap on it to show it to the bus driver and tap on “Ticket inspection” to show the QR code to a ticket inspector.

Just a reminder the when you are travelling with an HSL public transport ticket you need to be able to show it for inspections, so make sure that your phone is charged. If you have a 30-day ticket and get an inspection fine, you need to go to an HSL office to get it invalidated.

If you have any problems or questions regarding the use of the application, you can contact our customer service directly through the application.
