Opportunities for growth

Four years ago we published an article about implementing long-term goals for the city of Ljubljana. Now we would like to report on what has been done since then.

Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia and the country’s largest city, is the centre of Slovenian economy, politics, culture and transport. It is located almost in the middle of Slovenia at the crossing of main roads running from north to south and east to west of Europe. The distance from Ljubljana to Vienna is 380km, to Munich 410km and to Venice 240km.

Ljubljana’s main provider of public pass – enger transport is LPP (Ljubljana Public Transport), a limited liability public company 100% owned by the City of Ljubljana, which operates public transport services by bus only. Ljubljana has approximately 260,000 inhabitants and including the population of surrounding villages and towns, LPP serves approximately 360,000 people.

Each working day, 120,000 people comm – ute to Ljubljana to work or study and only 15% of them use public transport. The part of public transport for all transport modes moves around 15%. As a result of such a modal split heavy congestion can be found at peak hours. Twenty-seven bus lines currently operate in the city and another 32 bus lines in the suburban area. At present, the company employs 877 staff, of which 552 are bus drivers.
