Riga - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Local transport is affordable and easy. Buses and trams will take you anywhere you need to go in central Riga. Bolt (like Uber) is the largest Rideshare company, and even a trip across town is very affordable. - Mar 2022

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 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 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 2010
