Journey planning

Digitransit (project page)

HSL's next-generation journey planner, in cooperation with Finnish Transport Agency's national Journey.fi.

Digitransit project includes digitransit-ui user interface and back-end services providing APIs for public transportation data, geocoding and maps.

Live maps

Most vehicles in the HSL area publish their status to a MQTT server. MQTT clients can subscribe to these status messages and filter them based on e.g. transport mode and geographical area.


Ticket sales

HSL OpenMaaS API can be used to order public transport tickets, which can be embedded into your own mobile application.
