Getting around

Ljubljana city buses are operated by the Ljubljanski potniški promet (LPP) public utility company.

For bus travel, purchase the Urbana public transport card. It is available from LPP ticket offices, tourist information centres and most of the city's newspaper kiosks, newsstands and post offices. The card is priced at €2 and can store up to €50 of credit to be spent on city bus fares. The Urbana card can be topped up with cash at all the above-mentioned sales outlets and the green Urbanomat ticket machines located across the city, mostly next to bus stops.

A single journey fare is €1.30. It covers an up to 90-minute journey regardless of the number of buses needed to be changed to reach the destination.

The BicikeLJ is a bicycle-sharing system that gives you an opportunity to hire bikes from self-service terminals located across the wider Ljubljana city centre. The BicikeLJ offers 32 stations in Ljubljana, from 300 to 500 metres apart.

BicikeLJ bikes are particularly convenient for shorter, up to one-hour-long rides as hire is free if you return a hired bicycle to the nearest docking station within an hour and wait for five minutes before hiring a new one.

The use of the BicikeLJ system is practically free of charge. The only cost involved is the symbolic fee for compulsory online registration with the system, which stands at €1 for a week and €3 for a year and must be completed in advance of hiring.

The Centre of Ljubljana provides numerous possibilities for finding a vacant taxi.

Charges range between €0.80 and €1.50 for the starting fee and from €0.70 to €1.70 per kilometre. These are lower when taxis are ordered by phone. In any case, it is advisable to enquire about the fare before the ride.
