“Rīgas satiksme” invites students to extend their discount recipient status

In order to be able to buy travel tickets for public transport with a discount also in the future, “Rīgas satiksme” invites students who continue their studies at one of the higher educational establishments of Riga to extend the validity of the student’s status in their e-tickets. 

Student’s status in the e-ticket is granted until the date of expiry of the student ID card, therefore by extending the student ID card, the date of expiry of the student’s status must also be extended in the e-ticket. 

Student’s status may be extended in two ways: 

  • By submitting a request to extend the status of the discount recipient in the information system of the higher educational establishment (for instance, the University of Latvia, Riga Technical University, Turība University, BA School of Business and Finance, Riga Stradiņš University, Transport and Telecommunication Institute, Latvian Academy of Culture). After receipt of the confirmation, the student must go to one of the e-ticket vending machines and activate his student’s status; 
  • By submitting a request to any of the five customer service centres of “Rīgas satiksme”. Visiting a customer service centre, the student must take with him a personal identification document, a valid student ID card or a reference from the educational establishment. Please see the addresses of the customer service centres here.  

In accordance with the valid regulations, customer service in “Rīgas satiksme” customer centres takes place by prior appointment. We invite you to apply for a visit to the customer service centre electronically here.
