Bus Station
“If it is a nice weather and you have not much to carry, the easiest is to have a walk! Whether on foot or by car, Rälssitie-street will take you there. Go through the underpass of Kehä III (Ring 3) Highway, and take first right to get into the parking hall/into the shopping mall. If you are walking to Flamingo, try the glass doors in the building on your left after the underpass. If you are going to Flamingo by car, you need to go try the underpass, pass the Flamingo building on your left, turn left, and enter the parking from the other side of the building. ”
