Public transport travel system might change between Helsinki - Espoo.

Espoo city might be divided into B and C zones, where for instance B zone including Leppävaara will be cheaper to travel to. Head of group of chamber in Espoo, Maria Guzenina says it's absurd for people travelling within Espoo to pay different prices. The chamber has voted not to raise ticket prices, and same vote has been giving in whole city region. (Länsiväylä)
