According to VR, the reason for this is the corona situation. The cessation of ticket sales on trains is intended to prevent trains from becoming too full during peak periods.

The ticket can be purchased in advance from VR's self-service channels and R-kiosks. Tickets can also be purchased at the ticket offices opening next week in Helsinki and Tampere.

Due to the corona situation, VR recommends traveling outside peak hours and reminds passengers to keep a safe distance.
