How to minimise the risk of coronavirus on Linkki buses? 

Instructions for those using Linkki buses: 

  • Do not use a bus if you are ill – protect yourself and others! 
  • Follow the instructions provided by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare on hand hygiene and the correct way of coughing.
  • Keep a safe distance from other passengers, both while getting on a bus and while choosing a seat. 
  • Wear gloves while in the bus. Avoid touching surfaces (poles, straphangers, stop buttons, etc.) with bare hands.
  • There are hand sanitizer dispensers in the buses. Sanitize your hands when entering the bus, especially if you are bare-handed.
