12 HSL’s basic task HSL provides extensive transport options and creates conditions for a viable and pleasant Helsinki region.

13 Why a regional transport authority? 1.A viable transport system is a competitive asset at international level. 2.Traffic problems in the Helsinki region are not just an internal issue; they are something to be solved together. 3.A viable transport system necessitates high modal share of public transport across the region, not just in the metropolitan area. 4.Increasing the modal share of public transport requires an integrated public transport system. That is why we need a regional public transport organization.
