Good transport connections ensure that Kruunuvuorenranta is easy to access and well connected to other districts. You can reach many directions via Herttoniemi by public transport and car. In the future, a light rail line will take you from Kruunuvuorenranta to the inner city in 15 minutes.

Transport connections are evolving

Passenger car traffic to Kruunuvuorenranta runs via the Herttoniemi roundabout, Linnanrakentajantie and Laajasalontie. Public transport is available by means of the metro and connecting buses (84, 88/88B and 87N). The route and stop maps and timetables can be found in the Journey Planner. In the summer, public transport is complemented by city bikes. You can read about future public transport connections on the HSL website.

The construction also affects the entire street network in the area. As the area develops, the current streets in Herttoniemi and Laajasalo will also be renovated. You can follow the progress of the projects on the Helsinki Map Service.

Entirely new streets and outdoor routes will be built in Kruunuvuorenranta. Kruunuvuorenranta’s main street is Koirasaarentie, which was built first. The three-kilometre long Koirasaarentie will become a broad boulevard with trams running in the middle. The street lighting has been designed by lighting designer and architect Vesa Honkonen.

The beach promenade parallel to the western beach is another significant street in the area. It is expected to attract active leisure-related business. Maritime outdoor routes and light traffic bridge connections to Kulosaari and Herttoniemenranta are also being planned.

The city is preparing an analysis on starting a pilot project for ecological mass water transport between Kruunuvuorenranta and Meritullintori for 2022–2026. Information on the pilot project will be provided on these pages.

The Crown Bridges project

In the future, the Crown Bridges project will link Kruunuvuorenranta to the inner city. The connection via Hakaniemi, Korkeasaari and Sompasaari to the inner city over three bridges will be available for light rail traffic, cyclists and pedestrians. You can reach the centre by tram in 15 minutes and by bike in 20. The connection is expected to be completed in 2026.

The Helsinki City Council decided on the implementation of the project on 31 August 2016.

Parking

In Kruunuvuorenranta, residents can park either in the local Kruunuparkki garages, the courtyards of their blocks or below the yard decks. All five Kruunuparkki garages have been built. The housing companies rent out parking spaces to their tenants. Kruunuvuorenrannan Palvelu Oy manages the maintenance of the garages.

Parking is only allowed in designated spaces. Street parking for short-term use is available. As the area is still being built, there may be some exceptions to the parking arrangements, and you should always check the traffic signs for parking restrictions.
