“Rīgas satiksme” calls on car drivers entering Riga to use public transport to reach Riga centre

Given the fact that today at 5.00 the State Police closed the viaduct in A. Deglava Street, “Rīgas satiksme” calls on car drivers to refrain from going to the city centre by their cars  and to use public transport actively. “Rīgas satiksme” also calls on drivers to leave their cars near terminals of buses, trolleybuses and trams to ensure a more comfortable transfer to public transport.

“Rīgas satiksme” calls on drivers to take the opportunity and leave their cars in car parks next to the trade centres located near the city borders, where it is allowed and is in conformity with the company’s policy, i.e. where no additional fee is charged for a longer parking, because here you can transfer to Riga public transport. In this crisis situation caused by ill-considered political decision of state authorities, “Rīgas satiksme” also calls on drivers to use the services of AS “Pasažieru vilciens” electric trains to reach the city centre. At the same time, “Rīgas satiksme” calls on drivers to abide by road traffic regulations and reminds that in case of violating stopping and parking regulations a person may be subject to an administrative fine or, in case of breaching the rules of private car parks, to the fines of their operators.

“Rīgas satiksme” operates more than 80 tram, trolleybus and bus routes, most of which are crossing the city centre. Therefore, “Rīgas satiksme” calls on Riga visitors coming from the direction of Jūrmala, Ventspils and Liepāja to leave their cars in Imanta and Zolitūde, from where they can reach the city centre by tram No. 1, as well as buses No. 4, 4z, 37, 41 and 53.

If you enter Riga from the direction of Jelgava, you can leave your cars in Ziepniekkalns, from where you can reach the city centre by trolleybus No. 19 and bus No. 40.

If you enter Riga from the direction of Bauska, you can leave your cars in Valdlauči and Bišumuiža, from where you can reach the city centre by tram No. 10 and buses No. 12 and 23.

If you enter Riga from the direction of Daugavpils, you can leave your cars in various places near Maskavas Street, from where you can reach the city centre by trams No. 7, 9, trolleybus No. 15, as well as bus No. 18. We call on drivers not to leave their cars in Maskavas Street.

If you enter Riga from the direction of Ropaži and Ērgļi, you can leave your cars in Purvciems, Pļavnieki and the car park at 13, Ulbrokas Street, from where you can reach the city centre by trolleybus No. 22, as well as buses No. 3, 6, 51 and 52.

If you enter Riga from the direction of Valmiera, Cēsis and Salacgrīva, you can leave your cars in Jugla, from where you can reach the city centre by tram No. 1 and 3, as well as buses No. 1, 14 and 40.

If you enter Riga from the direction of Carnikava, you can leave your car in Mīlgrāvis, from where you can reach the city centre by tram No. 5. We call on drivers to consider the possibility of leaving their vehicles near Mangaļi and Ziemeļblāzma railway stations, in places where the road traffic regulations allow it and road traffic is not hindered, and then take an electric train of AS “Pasažieru vilciens” to reach the city centre.

“Rīgas satiksme” also calls for breaking the old traditions and revising the working hours of companies and institutions by starting to work earlier or later, introducing variable schedules of starting and ending work, as well as by allowing remote work, where it is possible. “Rīgas satiksme” will use the means at its disposal to follow passenger flow and introduce additional public transport runs, if necessary.
