Riga renews fare discounts on public transport

BC, Riga, 11.06.2020.Print version
The Riga City Council's temporary administration today decided to renew all public transport discounts that were in force before the state of emergency was declared due to the Covid-19 crisis, reports LETA.

This means that public transport discounts will be renewed for all those eligible - pensioners, students, and others in four days, June 15, as the municipal public transport company Rigas Satiksme has to reprogram its systems.

Most fare discounts in Riga were suspended at the end of March. 

However, in order to prevent people from getting infected with Covid-19, public transport fares on Ligo holidays, June 23 and 24, will not be effective.

As reported, in order to limit Covid-19 from spreading, passengers on public transport still have to cover their mouth and nose, even though the state of emergency ended on June 10, the Transport Ministry told LETA.

As the epidemiological situation changes, the requirement to cover mouth and nose on public transport will be revised.
