Bolt ride-hailing Helsinki

As well as being the land of a thousand lakes and the home of Santa Claus, Finland is now the latest country added to our ever-growing list of European locations!

From today onwards, you can order a Bolt ride to pick you up in Helsinki!

Now there’s an even better way to get around the Finnish capital, whether commuting to work, meeting friends, or exploring the city.

Simply download the Bolt app, request a ride, and sit back and enjoy your convenient and cost-effective journey.

“We’re excited about expanding our business to the Finnish market, and I’m confident we can help Helsinki’s transition toward green mobility services, which is already well underway.”

Bolt founder and CEO Markus Villig

How much does a Bolt ride cost in Helsinki?

  • Starting fee: €3
  • Cost per minute: €0.29
  • Cost per kilometre: €1.02
  • Minimum fare: €7
  • Wait time fee: €0.29 per minute

All new users will receive a 60% discount on their first ten trips.* 

That’s quite a welcome offer, isn’t it?

Extra earnings for drivers

It’s not just riders who’ll benefit from Bolt’s launch. Drivers in Helsinki can also take advantage of our services to earn extra money on their schedules and at their convenience.

The happier our drivers are, the better service they provide passengers. Our pricing model is one of Bolt’s success factors.

Drivers who signed up with Bolt before 1 July 2022 will enjoy 0% commission and 100% of their ride earnings for the first two months!

After that, the commission will reset to the standard 15%, significantly lower than the competition.

“We aim for the highest earnings per hour compared to any competitor and have already attracted hundreds of partners to our platform. High earnings create an ecosystem with more drivers, faster arrival times, and better services for our customers.” 

Mikael Uusivuori, Bolt Country Manager
