taxi from riga coach station

I will be arriviving at riga coach station at around 11.15 PM. I'm planning to stay at Radisson Elizabette Hotel, which is around 1 KM from the coach station. Is it safe to walk from riga coach station to the hotel at night? If not, is there taxi stand at the station? Is it safe to use the taxis near the coach station? Thanks.

Under normal conditions it is safe to walk that route even its late.

I would go via Merkela and then Kristjana Barona.

Actually it could be more risky with taxis from there, mostly you would

have to pay overprice (rip-off) for the trip. But there are reports about

more serious crime also - so if you need a taxi, advice is only the red or

the green Air Baltic taxis. More info about taxis in this forum.

Thank you for your reply. I just checked that the Lux bus stops at Radisson Latvija, which is 350m from Radisson Elizabette. I think I am just gonna opt for the Lux bus to be safer. I will also check more info about the taxis in this forum. Thanks.
