Bus Connections to the Viikki Campus

The 79 bus is the only one that makes the loop past the Cubile and it does not go to downtown Helsinki. It does connect with the Metro (Siilitie or Herttoniemi stations) that will take you to the center quickly (9 minutes from Herttoniemi to the Kaisaniemi station or 11 minutes from Siilitie). Beware: the 79V bus also leaves from the Herttoniemi Metro station but does not go by the Cubile (it will get you within walking distance though). The 79 bus now runs on Saturday and on Sunday there is now a 79A bus that runs between Latokartano and the Siilitie Metro station. After the last 79 bus in the evening, you will have to take a 74 or a 76 bus which leaves from Rautatientori (Railway Station Square) bus terminal and has a stop about 500 meters from the Cubile (Latokartano, red + on the map). You can, of course, take the 74 or 76 on weekdays (you can even take the 79 westbound from the cubile to connect), but the 79 to the Metro is faster. There are other buses that go near the Viikki Campus but have stops on the other side of the Helsinki-Lahti motorway.
