The Latvia taxi service is safe and efficient, so many tourists prefer to use it to get around the city. However, there is always the risk of being overcharged, so always look for Riga taxis that use the meter.

Travelling from and to Riga airport
Riga International Airport is in the Marupe municipality, around 10 km west of Riga. It's the main gateway for arriving in Latvia and the largest in the Baltic States. Travelling to and from Riga airport is secure, and there are several convenient options available: public transport, taxi and private transfer.
Taking the city bus 22 from Riga airport to the city centre is the cheapest option. The bus departs every 10-30 minutes and will drop you off near the Old Town. There are also two minibuses which operate from Riga International to the city centre. The journey by minibuses No. 222 and 241 will take 30 minutes, and it's more comfortable than the bus.
Riga and other cities in Latvia can be reached via an airport taxi from the airport. When choosing a Riga airport taxi, always look if the price list is displayed on the vehicle. It will ensure you're taking an official Riga taxi and charged appropriately.
