The Road Transport Administration gathers data on route demand based on purchased tickets, so passengers are urged to buy them in advance. Please contact the administration if you encounter any ticket sales violations by calling or texting 27776621.

As previously reported, May 4 is a holiday in Latvia as it's the day the country reinstated its independence. That day the Supreme Council of the Latvian Soviet Socialist Republic adopted the Declaration "On the Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Latvia" and renewed the 1922 Constitution of Latvia, making it a free and democratic state once again. This year will be the 30th anniversary of the event.
