“Rīgas satiksme” starts cancelling discounts for all categories of passengers

From October 21 to November 15, while the enhanced safety regulations are in force, in the public transport all discounts granted by the municipality for the purchase of travel tickets for all categories of passengers will be cancelled. Thus, from October 21, “Rīgas satiksme” will start gradual cancellation of discounts and all passengers will have to buy tickets at full price. Discounts will be cancelled automatically and passengers will be able to use their already existing e-tickets (Riga resident’s cards, student’s e-cards, personalized and non-personalized e-tickets) after having loaded full-price tickets on them. At the same time, “Rīgas satiksme” encourages you to consider the necessity of each trip and use public transport only in cases where there is no other alternative. To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the company encourages residents to stay at home.

Passengers who receive a discount granted by the state - persons with group I or group II disability, persons under 18 years of age with a disability and a person accompanying a person with group I disability or a person under 18 years of age with a disability, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not, will be able to continue to use public transport as before.

Full-price tickets can be purchased in advance at the ticket vending machines located in the streets and at over 400 sales outlets in Riga. To purchase tickets, passengers can use the existing e-tickets - personalized, non-personalized, Riga resident’s cards and student’s e-cards. See ticket sales outlets here.

For passengers who use full-price tickets for settlements in the public transport, the new procedure does not introduce any changes. As before, these passengers will be able to use both tickets for a certain number of trips, time tickets, which cost 2.30 EUR, and one-month tickets for travelling.
