Trains and buses, Latvia

Train tickets should be bought in advance - stations have separate windows for long-distance ( starpilsetu ) and suburban ( pirpilsetu ) trains. Long-distance services are divided into the following categories: "passenger" ( pasazieru vilciens ) and fast ( atrs ). Both are painfully slow but the latter, usually requiring a reservation, won't stop at every second village. Train information is available from station timetable boards - the Latvian for departure is atiet , and arrival is pienak . It's best to buy long-distance bus tickets in advance. Opt for an express ( ekspresis ) bus if possible to avoid frequent stops. You can also pay for your ticket on board, but this means you risk having to stand. Normally luggage is taken on board - if you have a particularly large bag you may have to pay extra to have it stowed in the luggage compartment. Buses are also useful for travelling to other Baltic countries, with services linking Riga with Tallinn and Vilnius.
