City for everyday cyclists

Porvoo’s goal is to make the city a functional everyday cycling city. Through zoning and city planning, Porvoo is developing a functional and comprehensive public transportation framework, rail connectivity and creating bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly urban areas. The city center’s transportation infrastructure development is moving towards low-speed, cycling and pedestrian friendly streets.


A historic city

Everything in Porvoo is nearby. Around 10 000 of Porvoo’s 51 000 inhabitants live within one kilometer of the market square, and 35 000 of them within five kilometers of the square. For most, walking and bicycling are the easiest and the most natural means of transportation in their daily life.
