For the 21st consecutive year, Ljubljana participated in European Mobility Week, the biggest international campaign for the promotion of sustainable mobility, held every year between 16 and 22 September.

This year, the destination paid attention to raising awareness of the benefits of walking, cycling, using public transport and other sustainable modes of travel through various one-day events, weekly activities and permanent measures.

Better connections

This year’s slogan ‘Better connections’ urges us to connect again after restricting contact, to meet and socialize in safe streets, squares and other public spaces in the city. Good accessibility to goods and services ensured mobility for all social groups and a variety of alternatives to personal transport contribute to a higher quality of life.

The EMW 2022 program contained nine permanent measures, 20 weekly activities and over 60 one-day events. All events were admission-free for visitors.

New secured bicycle storage

The city has also set up the first underground public bicycle storage in the Congress Square parking house, which has room for 78 regular and 14 electric bikes. Bicycle parking is free-of-charge, and access is enabled with the Urbana card.

In September, the roofs of four bus stops next to the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre were re-planted.

A new electromobility strategy

A study for the implementation and a business plan for the introduction of e-vehicles and the introduction of urban infrastructure for e-vehicles in the City of Ljubljana is being prepared. The study will include a description of the use of existing e-infrastructure and innovative transport services, as well as a plan to increase urban charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and green transport services in line with urban national implementation plans and EU strategic concepts and goals for mobility and the environment.
