Jyväskylä is a compact city and one which is easy to cover on foot, by bike or by bus. If you wish to travel beyond the city centre, simply jump on a local bus – look for the green "Linkki" logo. All local buses travel to and from the outdoor terminal on Vapaudenkatu, which is located between Asema-aukio square and Forum shopping centre.
In Jyväskylä you can travel on a local bus using a single ticket (costs 3€ per adult) that can be purchased from the driver. One-day travel cards (costs 8€ per adult) can't be purchased on the buses, only in designated points of sales that are Linkki customer service (Jyväskylä info, Forum shopping centre), Sokos information desk (Kauppakatu 24) or the ticket office at the Travel Centre (Hannikaisenkatu 20).
