National Bus stop database by Finnish Transport Agency. The data is being processed for Vallu which is a national transport permission system and for the national ticket and payment system.

Bus stop data has been gathered by contacting different authorities from municipalities, HSL and the regional centers for economic development, transport and the environment. The bus stop data has been processed to a database and it is still under update process. Some of the regions and municipalities were not able to provide the bus stop data in time so that data will be included in near future.
