Association information

The mission of transport policy is to ensure safe and smooth everyday travel, maintain the competitiveness of businesses and mitigate climate change by reducing emissions.
Finland's location far from the main traffic and logistics arteries of Central Europe poses major challenges to traffic policy. The needs of various demographic groups must be taken into consideration in the development of the transport system. Efficient and smooth public transport services support the achievement of transport policy objectives. Every effort is made to continuously improve traffic safety and the efficiency of the transport system by means of, for example, intelligent transport services.

Passenger transport

Passenger transport policy is implemented through legislation, guidelines and the procurement of transport services. The aim is a safe and environmentally-friendly transport system.

According to the Government Programme, the objective of transport policy is to ensure economically, socially and environmentally sustainable societal structures and regional development. Fast, safe and economical goods transport is also crucial to our national and international competitiveness.

Procured train, sea, air, bus and coach transport services ensure the availability of basic public transport services throughout Finland. The Ministry is also making efforts to promote walking and cycling.
