In the first quarter of 2020, a total of 17.7 million passengers travelled on Finnish railways, which is 21 per cent fewer than in the corresponding quarter of last year. The number of passenger kilometres in train traffic totalled 1,098 million. Passenger kilometres went down by six per cent from the corresponding quarter of the year before. Passenger kilometres indicate that the number of passengers decreased more in local transport than in long-distance transport.
