Oy Pohjolan Liikenne Ab's operations began with foreign trade transports between the port of Petsamo Liinahamari and Rovaniemi railway station during the Second World War in the spring of 1940. The ports of southern and western Finland were closed due to German measures.

Pohjolan Liikenne started bus traffic in 1949. Initially, operations focused on Eastern and Northern Finland and expanded to Southeast Finland in the early 1950s. Over the past 20 years, operations have been systematically developed through acquisitions so that the focus has shifted to southern Finland.

We make history all the time by evolving, expanding and learning.
