In general, passengers in Rīga public transport are conscientious and comply with the requirement to use face masks, and around 600 checks are carried out daily. Controllers ask around 40 people without masks to exit the vehicles on average.
The company constantly monitors the number of passengers and sets additional journeys when more passenger traffic is forecast, Innusa said.
The most popular routes are still bus 36, bus 3, and trolleybus 15, Innusa said. She also called on people not to use public transport unless it is necessary.
Innusa admitted that the company will face difficult times this year because there are no longer internal resources, which means that additional grants from the budget of Rīga will be needed.
In January the company experienced losses of one million euros, but losses might be smaller in February.
