In November, 18 710 inspections of public transport were performed

In the period from November 1 until November 30, ticket controllers of “Rīgas satiksme” performed 18 710 inspections of public transport, out of which 2077 inspections were performed together with the Riga municipal police officers. In October, 3735 passengers were fined for travelling without a ticket. Whereas, 942 passengers were discharged from public transport for travelling without a face mask or for its incorrect use.

Ticket controllers of “Rīgas satiksme” do not only check the tickets in public transport, but also pay close attention to the fact whether the passengers use mouth and nose covers correctly during the trip. If during the inspection it is detected that a passenger has no face mask, the ticket controller shall first tell the passenger that the face mask must be used and ask him/her to put it on – covering both the nose and the chin. If the passenger does not react to the request, at the nearest stop he/she will be asked to leave the transport vehicle.

“Rīgas satiksme” has been taking the following measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • all doors of public transport vehicles, except the front doors, are opened at each stop;
  • at all final points, thorough ventilation of buses, trolleybuses and trams is carried out;
  • passenger flow is being continuously monitored, so that it does not exceed 80% of the passenger compartment occupancy;
  • every evening, upon entering the park or depot, all transport vehicles are disinfected.

“Rīgas satiksme” is grateful to every passenger for observing the safety measures! Being understanding and observing them responsibly – with joint efforts, we will be able to return to normal daily life as soon as possible.
