Frequently Asked Questions


How do I buy a Subsidised School Transport Ticket?

You can redeem or buy a Subsidised School Transport Ticket as follows:

  1. If you do not yet have a personal Waltti card, you must get one from a service point in your city or from the Waltti webshop.
  2. Log in to the Waltti webshop and add the travel card you are using to your account. Your card must be a personal card.
  3. Fill in the application form for Kela's School transport subsidy and submit it to your educational institution for review. The educational institution fills in your proof of purchase in the Waltti system for the purchase of a school transport subsidy ticket.

Travel Card

Will registering benefit me?

When you register, you will create a user account where you can see all of your personal information and all of the Waltti services available to you. You can use the account to connect cards to your profile, for example. Once a card is connected to a user account, the card can be loaded directly and there is no need to separately add it. You can also view previous purchases using your account. When logged in, you can also add or remove cards from your account and change your e-mail address or password.

What cards can I load on the web shop?

You can load all personal or multi-user Waltti travel cards on the web shop.

Why doesn’t a product I loaded onto the card show on the bus card reader?

A loaded product will be transferred to the travel card once the loading has been successfully activated on a bus card reader or at a service point. On average, the purchase takes around two hours to activate on the selected region’s public transport buses, but in some exceptional cases it can take 1-3 days for the information to be transferred to the vehicles. You can check the terms and conditions of the online loading service to find out the length of the delay in your area.

There is also a delay in updating use of the Waltti travel card on the web shop.

Can I order a new travel card on the web shop?

You can order a personal travel card for yourself or a child under 17 living in the same household.

How long does it take for the card to be delivered?

The travel card will usually arrive at the address you provided within 7-14 days.

How can I start to use a travel card that I bought on the web shop?

If you loaded a value or season ticket onto the travel card when you bought it, the card will be ready to use as soon as it arrives.

Can I buy a multi-user travel card from the web shop?

Only personal travel cards can be purchased from the web shop.

I’ve lost my travel card. Can I cancel the card on the web shop and order another one?

If you lose your personal Waltti travel card, contact the service point in your area to cancel the card and transfer any unused journeys to a new card.

Can I order a travel card for my underage child from the web shop?
