From April 1, public transport tickets sales outlets in Riga will be partially changed

"Rīgas satiksme" informs that from Thursday, April 1, the list of the sales outlets in Riga where you can buy public transport tickets and top up e-tickets will be partially changed. In the future, public transport tickets in Riga will be stillavailable for purchase in SIA “Narvesen Baltija” (137 outlets), VAS “Latvijas Pasts” (12 outlets), SIA “MAXIMA Latvija” (83 outlets), SIA “Circle K Latvia” (22 outlets), SIA “ELKES” (1 outlet), SIA “G.A.L.” (3 outlets), SIA “VALDLAUČI” (1 outlet), SIA “VELFE” (1 outlet) and SIA “VITA mārkets” store “Elvi” (7 outlets) and SIA “Anvis” store “Elvi” here. In addition to the above-mentioned outlets, from April 1, public transport tickets will be available for purchase in SIA “RIMI LATVIA” (60 outlets), SIA “AMBER DISTRIBUTION LATVIA” stores “LATVIJAS BALZAMS” (18 outlets) and “LB SPIRITS & WINE OUTLET” (5 outlets), SIA “PROEVER” (1 outlet), SIA “VISS KĀRTĪBĀ” (1 outlet) and SIA “LENOKA” stores “MEGO” (43 outlets)

Changes in the ticket sales outlets have taken place, because on February 5, 2021, an open tender “Distribution of Riga City Public Transport Smart Cards and Smart Tickets” was announced (procurement ID No. RIGASK 2021/1). The open tender was open to merchants who wished to distribute tickets at their retail outlets and whose outlet infrastructure made it possible to technically connect ticket sales terminals. The tender was divided into several procurement lots based on the density of the population in the neighbourhood, the intensity of public transport and the number of public transport stops, as well as the location of the existing ticket vending machines and customer service centres in a certain neighbourhood.

Taking into account the results of the open tender, from April 1, the places of ticket distribution in Riga will be partially changed. For example, in Jugla area, public transport tickets will no longer be available in the three stores of SIA “Narvesen Baltija” network, but in this area, they will be available in the three RIMI stores, three MEGO stores and four MAXIMA stores, as well as in one CIRCLE K petrol station. Some changes have also taken place in the other areas of Riga.

"Rīgas satiksme" informs that the installation of the ticket sales terminals in the new sales outlets will take place gradually - within at least two weeks. Therefore please follow the information about the current points of sale equipped with the ticket sales terminals,
