Commuting Master Plan of Riga

The Commuting Master Plan of Riga (CMP) for the period from 2021 to 2027 aims to improve the sustainable mobility options in commuting process between Riga, Pieriga and adjacent municipalities. The area covered by the CMP is characterized by a high intensity of commuting both towards Riga and from Riga to the surrounding areas. 

This CMP complements the Action Plan for Riga Metropolitan Area development, where the focus is on diversification and adaptation of different
transport modes up to the scale and purpose of use. The CMP fits into the Riga Metropolitan Area Mobility Spatial Vision insights about the development of the outer and inner accessibility within the metropolitan area.

The CMP contains an overview on current situation and trends in mobility related aspects, topical policy and development planning documents on national and regional scale, directions for strategic aims and priority areas, as well as planned activities at regional and local level. The plan includes an explanation of the concept for mobility hubs, as well as the recommended scope of services at mobility hubs of different categories for ensuring their functionality.

The document also includes procedures for supervision of implementation and monitoring. The monitoring report on implementation of the CMP will be prepared in every three years – in the year 2024 and 2027. The report will reflect about completed activities or the activity progress during the reporting period. The Final report (in 2027) will contain information whether the CMP will be updated also in the upcoming period.
