The second stage of installing new shelters at public transport stops is continuing

“Rīgas satiksme” informs that the second stage of installing shelters at public transport stops, during which 300 new shelters will be installed at public transport stops for passengers’ comfort, is continuing. The second stage of replacing and installing shelters at public transport stops is performed by SIA “JCDecaux Latvija”. Thus, the city will get almost nearly 600 new shelters, as 297 already were installed during the first stage.

In the first months of the year, 30 shelters were installed at bus stops in different neighbourhoods of Riga, including Avoti, Dārzciems, Dzirciems, Iļģuciems, Imanta, Jugla, Ķengarags, Ķīpsala, Maskavas suburb, Pleskodāle, Pļavnieki, Purvciems, Rumbula, Sarkandaugava, Skanste, Torņakalns and Ziepniekkalns. 16 more shelters will be installed until the end of April:

The installation of the first 50 shelters at public transport stops will be finished late in May, but all 300 shelters of the 2nd stage are due to be installed until August 29, 2021.

It should be reminded that earlier the first stage of installing shelters was implemented, during which  new shelters were installed at 300 different public transport sport stops, based on passenger flow. It should be noted that the shelters are installed by a private investor and neither “Rīgas satiksme”, nor the city participates in this process with its budget funds.
