Free transport

How many vehicles can drive directly to Lake Bohinj shore? Not enough. How many cars do we want to see while walking along the shore of Lake Bohinj? None. Those who drive by car to Bohinj, can use other nature and environment friendly and cheaper options for parking and transport in Bohinj.

PARK AND RIDE

We promote sustainable mobility in Bohinj by offering park and ride options in the summer season. This also involves free public transport. Transportation is NOT intended for organized groups!

You can test the new Julian Alps timetables app, which makes it easier for you to plan your journeys by public transport. Note: in the test phase, the app only includes seasonal bus and shuttle services organised by the destinations of the Julian Alps, but not the regular public passenger transport lines of Slovenia.

ORGANIZED FREE TRANSPORT

Free summer organized transport has ended on 25. 9. 2022.

We would like to thank all the visitors who have used soft mobility in your discovery of Bohinj and have thus actively contributed to preserving this Alpine pearl for future generations. And our promise is, that we will do our best to improve our services in the future.

We also announce free transport during the Autumn holidays (29 October – 6 November 2022).
