Travelling in greener lands
Buy the Green Journey supplement - Let’s take care of the environment together
We offer our customers the opportunity to choose a lower-emission Green Journey from 14.5.2019 onwards. The Green Journey supplement is an optional extra charge that can be paid on a regular long-distance ticket: the customer can decide the amount themselves. The Green Journey supplement can be purchased from the Savonlinja online store or the Linjalla mobile app at the same time as the ticket purchase. We pledge to double your contribution and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by using the entire amount for refueling with Neste MY Renewable Diesel.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is 100 % made from waste and residues. The use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 90% compared to fossil diesel. Cooperation and public transport are tremendous forces for creating a cleaner future.
On the way to being Finland’s most environmentally friendly bus company
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is the most critical thing we can do to combat climate change. Travel-related choices are one of our most important opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions - and at Savonlinja, we want to provide an easy way to do this.
We have previously made strong efforts to improve the environment with traffic planning, equipment choices, and driver training. With the voluntary Green Journey add-on, we also give our customers the freedom to make a special effort for the environment. At the same time, we are fully focused on implementing our mission to be Finland’s most environmentally friendly bus company with all our actions. For example, for HSL in 2018, Savonlinja reduced 1,7 million kilos of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to emissions from nearly 570 cars.
Follow the transformation of bus travel in a greener direction
Public transport is already an environmentally friendly choice, but we want to do more in partnership with our customers. Use the counter below to track the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions reduced by the Green Journey add-on.

Green Journey is a new, voluntary additional charge of at least € 1 that contributes to the use of 100% renewable diesel. The Green Journey add-on service can be purchased for all Savonlinja’s long-distance trip tickets in our online shop and Linjalla mobile app. When a customer buys the Green Journey, Savonlinja commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by refueling with Neste MY Renewable Diesel.
Savonlinja pledges to double the amount of the Green Journey supplement contributed by the customer. For example, if a customer pays a supplement of 1 €, Savonlinja commits to reducing emissions by refueling with Neste MY Renewable Diesel for a total of 2 €. If the customer chooses to pay a supplement of 5 €, a total of 10 € worth of renewable diesel will be filled up.
Buying the Green Journey is easy. You don't need to do anything separately! When you buy a normal ticket, you choose the supplement that you would like to pay, and purchase the ticket as usual in the online store or mobile app. This way, you are a part of an even more environmentally friendly journey!
