The results of the Energy Efficiency Survey of Slovenia (REUS) 2021 show that 61 % of Slovenian households rarely or never use public transport. Depending on the type of settlements, the largest share of households that use public transport live in Ljubljana and Maribor, as well as in the Obalno-kraška region. A good tenth of those households that use public transport, has used public transport in the recent week, while a fifth of households used public transport in the recent month. The main aim of the use of public transport for two fifths of households are errands and shopping, while a quarter of public households use public transport for commuting. The share of households that use public transport as their main mode of transport for commuting to work remains very small. We should take into account that data for 2021 include impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has also affected use of public transport.
