No entrance through front door on Rīga public transport

From Tuesday, October 27, boarding and disembarking on all bus and trolley bus routes in Rīga will only be organized through the middle and rear doors, the Rīgas Satiksme transport company said October 26.

Ticket sales on public transport are not currently being stopped, tickets will still be available for purchase with the driver. Rīgas Satiksme asks passengers to purchase tickets prior to the ride as much as possible. If a ticket has to be purchased with the driver, exact change is to be handed over.

In Rīga, all transportation is equipped with a special protective glass, so the driver and passengers are separated. However, the arrangements for organizing passenger boarding through the middle and rear doors will allow for additional security for drivers.

Rīgas Satiksme indicated that every day all vehicles carrying passengers are cleaned and disinfected. Ventilation of vehicles is carried out at the final stops, with all public vehicle doors left open for a period.
