Ticket inspectors of “Rīgas satiksme” to follow passenger flow in public transport

As of today, March 23, public transport ticket inspectors will help passengers orient in emergency conditions and will encourage them to keep a 2-meter distance between one another, as well as will follow passenger flow in trams, trolleybuses and buses. To minimize infection risk, ticket inspectors will wear protective masks and gloves.

"Rīgas satiksme" reminds that ticket inspection procedure has been changed and now passengers shall not give their e-tickets to inspectors, but approach their e-tickets to control devices themselves.

To reduce the risk of the spreading of virus COVID 19, everybody must be involved, so it is important that people have as little social contacts as possible and would use public transport during the emergency situation only when it is really necessary.

Those clients having returned from abroad in the last 14 days are urged to observe the quarantine set in Latvia and not to use public transport. Let us be responsible and take care not only of our health, but also of the health of people around us.

“Rīgas satiksme” thanks everybody who observes the emergency situation and moves as little as possible. We also thank everybody and particularly medical staff, who are working selflessly to reduce the further spreading of the virus.
