I am going to Vilunius on 8th of June, but change a plane at Riga. I have 5 hours waiting time. So I would like to have a short lunch visit in the Town of Riga. What is the best way to get the city?

You can take the public bus #22, which takes you from airport to city center for 2€, or you can use YandexTaxi or Bolt taxi mobile app, it will cost around 6-7€ one way.

We always take Bolt taxi to/from the airport. The app is very easy to use (I would suggest to download it beforehand: https://bolt.eu/cities/riga/), the trip is fast (appr. 15 minutes), and it's not that expensive. I would say it's a good value for the price. I hope that helps! :)

thank you
you can take the 22nd trolleybus, i think it’s about 30-40 minutes to the centre and it will bring you right to the old town.

Install Yandex taxi app. (Free wifi in airport). And call a taxi to upper level(departure) of airport. Yandex shows fixed price for trip(7-9eur one way) Do not take taxi that is parked at the exit of arrival doors(expensive). You could take bus 22 from acceos the parking lot, but it takes longer and you must follow schedule(2eur one way pp). For schedule and trip planning use Trafi app. (As for quick lunch stop I would recomend “Folkklubs ALA pagrabs” restaurant. Its located in the heart of old Riga. The atmosphere and food is great. And reasonable prices)

Thank you very much!
I think I will try bus on the way to city and taxi back to airport. Is it easy to find "the right taxi " in the city?
Use Yandex or Bolt app to call taxi. It will be cheaper. But yes- you can hail any taxi from City center and it will have more or less fixed price for airoprt (about 10 EUR)
😊👍♥️
I would argue against hailing a taxi just like that, some of them can easily go beyond 10 EUR, especially if you speak English. Again Bolt, Yandex or bus is the right choice. The bus 22 stops near Central station and at Daugava/Old town every 10 minutes or so. Also do buy a bus ticket at the machine located at the airport bus stop (or any Narvesen in the city), it's significantly cheaper than inside the bus.

seko you can manage to go from airport to city centrs, but with traffic in summer, it’s risky. i would recomend just to go to shopping centre in spice, its nevar airport and can go with same bus that goes to city centre. bus ir 22, stops at airport door.

Aha, good idea
I just did it as you sugggested. Thank you very much 😊
Just dont take taxi right at the exit, may be expensive. Use city bus or Bolt taxi. If use taxi, ask about price before get in!
