The right to use public transport free of charge for car drivers aims to reduce traffic intensity during heavy snowfalls and make the work of road maintenance equipment easier. The so-called snow-storm ticket has been introduced by the municipality for the first time three years ago.
During the above period, a car registration certificate will be considered a valid document giving its holder the right to use public transport free of charge. They must be only presented during ticket control, but not to vehicle drivers. The days when card registration certificates are valid will be announced in municipal portals sniegs.riga.lv, riga.lv, and also through media.
