Ljubljana is a rather small city and easy to get around. The public city bus network makes it easy to travel within the city. The city lines connec all districts, which run according to regular schedules throughout the day. A smart card, Urbana (also available as mobile app), has to be purchased before the use of public transport.

Urbana card can also be used to use the city bike sharing system BicikeLJ. Getting around by bike is the most efficient and often pleasent mode of travel in the city.

Ljubljana also has a well organised taxi service, which is not exceedingly expensive. There are fixed spots in the city where taxis are stationed, or they can be ordered by telephone or via mobile apps.
