The Matkakeskus Travel Centre and Matkahuolto terminal located in the heart of Jyväskylä is a hub for train and long-distance bus traffic. The Travel Centre offers easy access to the city centre, fairs and other public events in the direction of the Paviljonki congress centre and the marina in Lutakko. In the immediate vicinity of Matkakeskus there is also ample parking space. See Jyväs-Parkki’s street parking locations here and car parks here. (in Finnish) The Cityhirvi (’City elk’) artwork decorating the front of Matkakeskus was crafted by Samuli Alonen (see also Design Alonen).

Tickets are available for Matkahuolto long-distance buses and VR trains. Additionally, the Travel Centre houses restaurants and small shops where you can buy a snack or something to read on your trip. Luggage lockers of different sizes are available (width 37-39cm/height 57-90cm/depth 72-88cm). The cost is 2 € per locker (only 2 € coins accepted).
