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.


As a contribution to sustainable mobility, we offer organized free public transport in Bohinj.

Shuttle services to the ski resorts (Vogel, Soriška Planina, Pokljuka) are organised throughout the winter season.

The shuttle services are NOT intended for organized groups of passengers!

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.

Routes 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and routes to Slap Savica and  Soriška Planina:

Public transport service providers have their own rules and most do not accept dogs on buses. There are exceptions: guide dogs, police dogs, military dogs, rescue unit dogs and mountain rescue dogs accompanied by a guide and guide dogs with the guided person.

The main public transportation services provider in Bohinj (Arriva) also accepts smaller animals on buses, which are transported in dedicated transport boxes.

Arriva has set the regulations regarding the transport of dogs on the basis of Article 42 of the Decree on the method of implementation of economic public service on passenger public line transport in inner road transport and on the concession of this public service, published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 29/2019 as of 6 May 2019.
