Pick up at the port (Central Passenger Terminal)
Important! If the docking port is Krievu Sala then transfers to/from the centre and a pass to the port are needed. It takes about 20-40 min extra time (depending on roads) and costs 50-65 USD one way in my minivan or you can use shuttle buses and then we meet in the centre.
