2. Intercity transportation

When travelling around Latvia, most of the towns and cities are easily accessible by regional transportation systems – trains or buses.

The towns closest to Riga — Jūrmala, Sigulda, Cēsis, Valmiera, Saulkrasti, Jelgava, Tukums, Ogre — are easily accessible by train from the Central Railway Station. The train can take you also to distant towns as Liepāja, Daugavpils and Zilupe. Train carriages with a bike logo on the door have storage space for bicycles as well. The tickets are sold at the Railway stations or from the ticket-controller (NB! Only in cases if there is no ticket office at the train-stop)

Latvia has an even wider network of bus routes. Tickets can be purchased at bus stations, or from the driver on a bus shortly before departure, as well as online.
