Last day to use last year's Rīga public transport tickets

Take note – story published 1 year and 2 months ago

Travellers in the Latvian capital are reminded that March 2 is the last day on which public transport tickets bought at last year's prices will be valid on buses, trolleybuses and trams.

All Rīgas Satiksme (Riga Transport, RS) tickets purchased before 31 December 2022 have remained valid for 60 days, but that period ends now. However, unused season tickets can be returned to Rīgas satiksme within 12 months of purchase and 100% of the unused period will be refunded.

To encourage passengers to use public transport regularly, monthly tickets were significantly reduced in price from 31 December 2022 and now cost EUR 30 per month for all public transport types instead of the current EUR 50.

A new type of ticket, the 90-minute ticket for EUR 1.50 has been introduced for all passengers, replacing the previous one-trip and one-hour tickets. A 24-hour ticket is available at the price of EUR 5 as before, a three-day ticket costs EUR 8 and a 5-day ticket EUR 10.

Only on bus route No. 22  – the route from Rīga Airport to the city center that many tourists will use – is it possible to buy trip tickets from the driver, and payment for the ticket can be made with a bank payment card only (no cash). The ticket costs EUR 2, one way.
