Some trains will have ‘Covid-safe’ cars from next week in Latvia

As of September 15, special cars are planned on individual train routes where only people with a valid Covid-19 certificate of vaccination, recovery or negative test will be allowed to board.

In these cars, passengers and ticket controllers will not have to use the mouth and nose covers, nor will they have to comply with the limit on the number of passengers.

The routes to and from Riga and Daugavpils, Kraslava and Rezekne will implement this experiment between September 15 and the end of the month.

As of September 13, the train passengers will be able to purchase a numbered seating ticket for the ride in the special car at all ticket offices on the train. Passengers will be required to present the Covid certificate, an identification document and a train ticket before boarding the train.

On the basis of the results of the first month and the responsiveness of passengers, the company will decide on the provision of this service in the future.
