A new payment method is available in “Rīgas satiksme” public transport - Code ticket

From today, October 21, it is possible to pay with a code ticket in “Rīgas satiksme” public transport. The new ticket can be purchased in the application of “Rīgas satiksme” and when entering public transport, it must be registered by scanning the QR code.

Deputy Chairman of the Riga City Council Vilnis Ķirsis, “I am pleased that in the future public transport passengers will be able to purchase tickets immediately, in online mode. Riga and “Rīgas satiksme” have taken the first step towards modern payment options. In addition, in these epidemiologically difficult times, this form of payment will enable to reduce contacts and purchase tickets remotely.”

Džineta Innusa, Chairman of the Board of “Rīgas satiksme”, “With the code ticket, the possibilities of purchasing tickets will be expanded, moreover, the code ticket, which will operate in parallel with the existing system, can be purchased at any time of the day. Currently, it will be possible to purchase one-trip tickets in the application, but we will monitor how the application is used and start working on its further development. With the provision of open and fair competition, users will be able to choose which of the three possible applications to use - the application of “Rīgas satiksme”, “Mobilly” or the application of SP Grupa, which is still under development."

The development of the code ticket was started at the end of 2020 and as a result of an open procurement procedure, the right to develop the application was acquired by SIA “CatchSmart”. Director of Strategic Development Madara Melne, “A code ticket helps a public transport user to save time, easily buy travel tickets and use them in a mobile application. We are pleased to participate in the development of this solution and create a simple, friendly solution for both residents and the environment. The new solution of “Rīgas satiksme” is one of the best in the European cities, where transport tickets can be purchased and used in a mobile application within a few seconds.”

More information about the code ticket is available here.
