If you draw a triangle where the corners are the three most populous areas in Finland – Helsinki, Tampere and Turku – Forssa is situated roughly in the middle, about 100 km from each of them. Forssa does not have an airport or railway station, so the only way to get in is by car or bus. There is a railway station in nearby Jokioinen, on a heritage narrow gauge railway from Humppila on the Turku–Tampere railway, serviced Sundays in summer.
