Pivo’s digital student card is being improved based on the feedback from the test group. The digital student card is accepted on VR’s trains and Matkahuolto’s busses, as well as multiple other places. However, we recommend you keep your plastic student card with you in case the digital student card isn’t accepted. In case you find a place that doesn’t accept Pivo’s digital student card, please let us know!
