What is e-ticket?

E-ticket is a universal electronic ticket enabling the use of the most up-to-date and convenient means of payment for public transport services. In Riga public transport, e-tickets were fully introduced on May 1, 2009, and they are valid in all public transport vehicles of "Rīgas satiksme". During the transition period of March-April 2009 passengers could use both fare payment systems, the previous one and also the new electronic system.

The implementation of the new system did not lead to tariff changes, and passengers entitled to fare discounts according to Riga City Council regulations can still enjoy these discounts. Only the means of payment has changed.

E-ticket allows passengers to save time on buying tickets, solves the problem of the availability of paper tickets in retail trade, and requires no cash. A ticket loaded to an e-ticket is valid for 12 months from the moment of its purchase, except when the tariff of the ticket type changes or the ticket type is cancelled and Riga municipal company "Rīgas satiksme" sets a transition period for the validity of the ticket type.

How to use e-ticket?

When entering public transport – bus, trolleybus or tram, a passenger has to apply a yellow or a blue e-ticket to an electronic validator. Thus the trip is registered and the passenger pays for the trip. Passengers entitled to 100% fare discounts also have to register their trips.

Electronic validators are located in public transport vehicles – buses, trolleybuses and trams and register passengers paying for the trip.
