Are local buses, trams, trains or taxis safe and affordable?

Yes, safe, cheap, and widely available. For taxis, stick with Baltic Cab or Red Cab, or the Taxify app (Uber knockoff that lets you still pay cash if you want). - Jul 24, 2017
Yes. Buses and trams cost 2 EUR per trip; 1 EUR if you purchase a multi-use bus pass. They are safe and reliable. Taxis aren't too expensive either; just make sure to use a reputable company like Riga Red Cab, Baltic Taxi, Panda Taxi, or Taxify and make sure that the driver uses the meter. - Sep 21, 2016
Trains, buses and trams are safe and affordable. There are a couple good taxi companies and a lot of others trying to rip you off. - Jul 11, 2010
