In 2018, an amendment to the Latvia transportation law (Autopārvadājumu likums) was passed, to promote the participation of ride-sharing platforms in the Latvian transportation market. This amendment restricts ride-sharing services to cars with up to four passenger seats and specifies that such services can be only offered, requested and confirmed using electronic communications services (such as a website or a mobile application online). Payments are determined based on the fare recorded by a taximeter and surcharge, and can only be made non-cash. Carriage of goods or freight is not allowed by non-commercial entities.
