How to reach the SurgiCam venue?

Locals and foreigners admit that public transport in Riga is very good. There is a variety of transport options that you can use when in Riga and all means of transport are easy to use. All public transport types have strict timetables (usually from 5:00 to 0:00) and unless anything extraordinary happens you can rely on them. These timetables can be found in each public transport stop.

The main provider of public transport in Riga is SIA “Rīgas Satiksme”. The company runs busses, trolleys and trams in more than 80 routes covering all of Rīga. You can find the route map, optimal route searches, timetables and information about the e-ticket on the homepage of Rīgas Satiksme or by calling 8 000 19 19 (free of charge).

Smart phone users can download public transport applications! The applications run in offline mode and provide transport routes and schedules. The applications allow transport routes to be viewed on the map and they can also display your location using GPS support.
