In order to use free travel, you need to have an electronic travel card and your place of residence must be registered in Riga. You can get a travel ticket at Rīgas satiksme customer service centers (customer service by appointment) and the Riga Ukrainian Support Center at 4 Amatu Street (customer service on a first-come, first-served basis from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.). It is necessary to take with you an identity document and a document with a personal code issued by the Migration Service of Latvia. If you already have an electronic travel card, take it with you, if not, a new travel card will be issued to you on the spot.

Children of preschool age can ride in Riga's public transport for free. But schoolchildren can get a 100% discount on travel if they study at a local school. For this, you need to have a student card - it is issued at the place of study. Further, the registration process is the same as for an adult.
