I would like to travel from Palanga to Riga in August. I guess there should be direct buses, but I can't find any schedule. I also need to know if we should buy tickets in advance (a day, a week?) or can do it just before the departure. Can I buy tickets via Internet somehow?
Departs form Palanga at 9:00.
Can buy a ticket via internet at www.autobusubilietai.lt , though whether it is necessary or not depends on season. August is a high season.
There are more options if you go to Klaipėda and take a bus to Riga from there - there is another route which avoids Palanga.
Acctually, there might be some extra busses during summer time. You can check on:
Another possible variant is going from Palanga to Liepaja aand then taking some local Latvian bus to Riga.
And there might be problems with tickets so better buy in advance. Still if you want to buy them now it's little bit too early, do it in just about a month from you visist time.
There is also a flight from Palanga to Riga - www.airbaltic.com
If you will need any help when buying buss tickets as Remigia advised one month before trip, you can contact me.
Have a nice day!
Do you have a fixed time when you have to go Riga, do you go to Riga airport or center? There are few busses going from Klaipeda to Riga and to Riga airport, I wll tell you more details when I know what is your plan.
