Off-peak train travel set to get 20% cheaper

From Monday, October 16, until December 8 of this year, tickets for 45 off-peak period train routes will be 20% cheaper on weekdays, in an effort to get passengers to choose to travel when there is less passenger flow, rail company 'Pasažieru Vilciens' ('Passenger Train') has announced.

The 20% discount will be applied at the train ticket offices, on the "Passenger Train" website and mobile app, and on the train itself from the conductor, if the ticket office is closed.

The mid-day 20% discount on single-trip tickets applies to:

  •  9 departures on the Riga–Skulte–Riga route;
  • 8 departures on the Riga–Aizkraukle–Riga route;
  • 10 departures on the Riga–Jelgava–Riga route;
  • 18 departures on the Riga–Tukums–Riga route.

Train timetables at the ticket offices and station information boards will show the discounted departures with a green sign. These flights are also marked with a 20% discount sign on the website and mobile app.

When purchasing an e-ticket on the Jelgava or Aizkraukle railway routes, the price of the specific route will already be indicated with a 20% discount, as well as with an additional applicable 5% or 10% discount for buying a ticket electronically.

If you buy a ticket with the 20% discount but then decide to go on a train for which this discount is not applicable, you can pay the difference at the ticket office or on the train from the conductor, avoiding the need to pay for two separate tickets. When boarding the train at a stop where the ticket office is open, an additional EUR 0.50 surcharge will be applied if buying from an on-board conductor.
