Regarding bus travel:

We are especially prepared to support group travel by bus, so if there is a group that would be hiring a bus to come to the meeting and would need financial assistance, please be in touch with us as soon as possible.

Regarding travel from Stockholm:

With your own bus: If you are traveling with a bus of your own: as the ferry arrives at a port very close to the city centre and there is a free local travel pass included in the cost of the venue, we suggest that you leave your bus in Stockholm: you won’t need it during the event in Helsinki.
