Internet users were particularly active on June 23, when Riga was preparing for the popular Midsummer festival, and on June 1, when several changes in public transport routes were introduced and the first low-floor tram was launched.

The lowest activity was witnessed in summer, on Sundays of July and on June 25, the day after the Midsummer festival, when the website was visited about 10 000 times only. Every day there are about 18 000 visitors at "Rīgas satiksme" website on the average.
