It's relatively easy, but it is then highly recommended to purchase a 3 day tourist ticket for convenience. More information is available here: http://www.ytv.fi/ENG/transport/tickets_and_fares/prices_2009/tourists/tourist_tickets.htm Please note that you would need a *region* card (3 days, adult, 24.00 euros). You can compare this to a one way trip from the city center to Espoo (CSC). (4.00 euros one way.) Please don't confuse this with another Helsinki pass called the Helsinki Card. (55 euros for 3 days.)
