Due to the railway infrastructure modernization works planned by VAS “Latvijas dzelzceļš” (LDz), there will be changes in the movement of trains in the direction of Tukums, Daugavpils, Indras, Rēzekne, Zilupe, Madona, Gulbene and Aizkraukle in the Lielvārde-Skrīveri section from today until June 5, AS informed LETA agency ” Passenger train” (PV) representatives.

PV indicates that on the Lielvārde-Aizkraukle section, passenger transportation will be provided by buses in certain cases.

There will be changes in the movement of trains on the routes Riga-Sloka, Riga-Dubulti, as well as Tukums II-Riga, Ķemeri-Riga, Sloka-Riga and Dubulti-Riga. On the Tukuma railway line, individual train journeys will be canceled along the full route or on its section, and new journeys will be scheduled at a different time on the relevant section. Also, some flights will be operated every day, not only on weekdays or holidays.

There will also be changes in the railway lines Riga-Daugavpils, Riga-Krāslava, Riga-Indra, as well as Indra-Rīga, Krāslava-Rīga, Daugavpils-Rīga, Līvāni-Rīga, Zilupe-Rīga, Rēzekne II-Rīga, Krustpils-Rīga, Gulbene- Riga and Madona-Riga. In the direction from Riga, the changes will start from Lielvārde, with trains entering the terminal points later, while in the direction of Riga, trains will leave the terminal point earlier, entering the capital according to the schedule. On the other hand, the Līvāni-Rīga train will be canceled on Sundays.

There will also be changes in train routes Riga-Aizkraukle, Riga-Lielvārde, as well as Aizkraukle-Rīga, Lielvārde-Rīga and Ogre-Rīga. In the section Aizkraukle-Lielvārde, certain electric train trips will be canceled during certain morning and afternoon hours on weekdays, thus passenger transport in both directions will be provided by buses with valid tickets for the train. Bicycles are not intended to be transported on buses.

The mentioned changes are included in the list of train movements published in the PV mobile app “Vivi” and on the website “vivi.lv”.

It has already been reported that PV’s turnover last year, according to preliminary data, was 59.777 million euros, which is 14.4% more than in 2022, while the company’s profit before corporate income tax (CIT) increased by 39.8% – to 844 579 euros.

PV was established in 2001, separating domestic passenger transportation from the functions performed by “Latvijas dželčas”. Previously, PV was a 100% subsidiary of “Latvijas dželčas” but in October 2008 it was transformed into a state-owned company.
