Free public transport for vocational school students and persons with 3rd category disabilities to commence March 20

Feb 12, 2013

RIGA - Riga City Council's Traffic and Transport Committee today approved free public transportation for vocational school students and persons with third category disabilities from March 20 this year, Riga City Council informed LETA.

The original proposal was to introduce free public transport for persons with third category disabilities from March 15 and for vocational school students from September 1. However, the committee's chairman Vadims Baranniks (Harmony Center) proposed that the discounts commence already on March 20, and the committee approved his proposal.

Riga City Council will vote on the proposal on February 14. After that, Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development will analyze the decision for about a month, therefore the new system of public transport discounts could come into effect on March 20.

Municipal public transport company "Rigas satiksme's" incomes will reduce by 4.27 million lats as a result, but this amount will be compensated from Riga budget.

As reported, local government elections in Latvia will be held on June 1.
