Public transportation in Rīga

The main provider of public transportation in Rīga is Rīgas Satiksme LLC. The company runs busses, trolleybuses and trams on more than 80 routes that cover the entire city. All public transport types have strict timetables (usually from 5:00 to 0:00) and, unless anything extraordinary happens, are highly reliable. Timetables can be found at each public transport stop as well on Rīgas Satiksme’s homepage.

Tickets

We suggest that you purchase tickets for a certain number of trips or a timed, week-long ticket that is valid for 5 consecutive business days on all routes. More information about the public transportation tickets.
