Flooded Road


Heavy shower flooded Riga today; the storm torn branches off the trees, so many streets, roads became blocked.
Thankfully it was very short rain, hence the traffic was limited just for some hours.
The picture was taken this Sunday afternoon on the exit from Riga Airport.

Hybrid Trolleybus

Hybrid trolleybus
Writing Trolejbuss behind the glass was placed in order to avoid confusion. It is very useful because when Hybrid Trolleybus is without trolley poles, it looks exactly like a bus.
The route of Trolelybus 8 was recently extended and now it crosses with the route of Bus 8.
I can only imagine how many people took the wrong bus :)
Check also interesting photo of Trolleybus depo.
Picture was taken at recently renovated Grecinieku stop.

Marijas iela

Marijas street
Marijas iela (Maria street) formerly Pleskavas iela (Pskov Street) is one of the main streets in Riga.
Marijas iela starts at Central station, runs several blocks and then turns into Caka iela.
It is not an unique case in Riga, when the same street has two names, one at the beginning and another one at the end.
At the foreground a pink Art Nouveau building is newly opened Nordic Hotel Bellevue.

Autoosta


Rīgas Starptautiskā autoosta (Riga International Bus Station) is one of the major transport nodal points in Latvia. Located in very center of Riga, autoosta serves domestic and international routes in more than 30 European countries.
The buses go to the closest capitals Vilnius and Tallinn almost every second hour, even during the night time. Trip to Vilnius or Tallinn takes about 4 hours, and the price is less than 15 Euro in one way.

Čili Pica Bus


This microbus is waiting to be pressed and then melted into something new and beautiful :)
I found this old bus on small wrecking yard next to Tornakalns Station.
The price of such metal scrap in Riga is about 140Ls (~ 200 EUR) per 1 ton.
Does somebody wanna pimp my ride? :)

Microbuses


Microbuses (Sometimes called as marshrutka or mikriņš) is one of the most popular transport among Rigans.
More than one hundred destinations to any Riga suburb and hundreds routes across the City.
Rapidity, low prices (0.5 Ls ~ 0.8 EUR) and sometimes comfort make Micro buses so popular.
This photo was taken in Microbuses hive - next to Central Station.

Updated: answer to anonymous in comments: Yes, it is such a negligence to fix flags wrong.
