tramway

Opened in
1882, Riga now supports an 8 line, 123 km system. A metro was in the planning stages in the 1980's but was never built due to public concerns about possible damage to historic buildings. Now, Riga plans a light rail network, starting with three lines. Trams have recently been refurbished by Ganz Transelektro of Hungary, and in 2010 a new low floor fleet by Skoda hit the streets. Other future plans include a 3.6 km tram extension.

According to the official home page, Chernobyl combatants receive a discount.
