ACCESSIBLE ARRIVAL

You can arrive to the festival grounds on foot or by bicycle. Festival buses and taxis arrive at the festival bus station, which is located approximately two kilometers from the festival grounds, next to the Ruissalo bridge. Bicycle parking is located near the main entrance.

Accessible arrival at the festival grounds is possible in an accessible taxi by completing the accessibility wristband application or by applying for personal parking space within the accessible parking area. Both the accessible taxi stand and the accessible parking spaces are located approximately 400 meters away from the accessible entrance. Instructions for applying for a parking space can be found below. If your mobility is temporarily reduced, please contact saavutettavuus@ruisrock.fi.

We recommend booking the accessible taxi in advance for both the outward and return journey. Traffic toward and away from the island is slower than normal during the festival weekend. Traffic becomes most congested on the Friday and Saturday nights at 01:00–03:00. We recommend booking your taxi outside of the peak hours. 

A free accessible shuttle service is available from the festival grounds. The service consists of a dedicated accessible taxi that has room for several wheelchairs and other users of accessibility services with assistants or interpreters. In order to access the shuttle service, you will need an accessibility wristband. Do note that this service is only intended for users of the accessibility services and their assistants and interpreters. More information about the accessible shuttle service can be found below.

The accessible parking area is located approximately 400 meters away from the accessible entrance. The asphalt-covered parking area has a limited number of accessible parking spaces. You can apply for an accessible parking permit if you have a disabled parking permit or parking card for people with reduced mobility granted by the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom). 

Please note that you must apply for a parking space in advance as only a limited number of spaces is available, and the parking area cannot be accessed without a personal parking permit granted by Ruisrock. The parking area includes an accessible toilet. 

You can apply for a parking permit by completing the accessibility wristband application by 23:59 on July 4, 2022.
