Public transport ticket prices to change

Starting from January 1, 2010, the price of one trip in "Rīgas satiksme" public transport will be 50 santims. The prices of the tickets, to which the discounts set by Riga municipality apply, will not change, but those of other tickets, including  tickets for a certain amount of trips, limited time and one-month tickets, will be increased.

"Rīgas satiksme" calls on its customers to plan buying tickets, bearing in mind that the new tariffs will take effect on January 1, 2010. For passengers’ comfort, the company will set a transitional period until the end of February, during which unused old-tariff tickets will be also valid. Customers willing to get their money back will have to present the check confirming the purchase of the ticket. Unused tickets will be compensated 100% until March 1 only. After March 1, tickets will be compensated at 90 %, or, if the ticket is already used, at 75 % of the remaining value.
