In Latvia in 2021, a draft law on passenger transport on demand will be developed

On December 17, 2020, the proposal initiated by Vidzeme Planning Region to provide passenger transportation based on their demand received the support of the Parliament of the Republic of Latvia (Saeima), and the Parliament instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to submit a draft law by November 30, 2021.

Guna Kalniņa-Priede, Head of administration of the Vidzeme Planning Region says: “We are pleased to have the unanimous decision of the Saeima deputies. We can therefore consider that the public transport sector in Latvia is becoming more open to new and innovative solutions. As the initiators of the idea, we will definitely follow the process of drafting the law. The experience of the pilot project carried out during MAMBA will be very useful for us.”

Despite the fact that the project has been completed, work is still ongoing to bring new mobility solutions to rural areas.
