The student discount for buses applies to full-time students. The student discount will be granted to a passenger with a valid Matkahuolto and VR student card or card with Matkahuolto's logo from a student organisation.
The student card must have a valid sticker for the academic semester or year. An autumn semester sticker is valid until the end of the following January and a spring semester sticker is valid until the end of following September. Cadet discount will be granted to passengers with an official military identity card.
Student tickets are available as single and return tickets for at least 60 km distance. The discount is 30% for Savonlinja's market-based departures and 50% for non-market-based departures. Student discount tickets can also be purchased for a shorter distance than 60 km; however, the discount is then smaller.
The discounts mentioned will be granted by the driver for the purchased tickets. Tickets purchased online may be even cheaper.
