Information for Passengers on National Rail and Bus Services in Slovenia 

Intercity Bus Transport

Due to some road sections that remain impassable, certain intercity bus lines are still not running in the following regions: Koroška, in Zgornja Savinjska dolina, partly also in Gorenjska region near Škofja Loka and in Štajerska region in the area of Ptuj. The situation in gradually improving, however in some areas we expect longer disruptions to the planned timetables due to damaged road infrastructure. Detours or alternative services for cancelled trains are being arranged where possible. Bus services between the east and the west of the country were restored on Saturday following the re-opening of the A1 motorway.

Domestic Rail Passenger Transport

Due to extreme weather conditions in the past days and damaged railway infrastructure no rail passenger services are currently running:

  • Between Ruše and Prevalje: there are no organised alternative services due to the impassable roads and inaccessible stations and stops. There is no timetable yet for the gradual re-opening.
  • Between Celje and Velenje: there is an organised alternative bus service, so traffic is running despite the closure of the line. The estimated timetable for the opening of this railway line is Monday 7th August in the evening.
  • Between Trbovlje and Litija: an alternative bus service is organised, so traffic is running despite the closure of the line. The planned timetable for the partial opening of this railway line is Tuesday 8th August, however certain restrictions will apply. A special adapted timetable for trains and alternative services is being prepared and will apply until August 20th, when the rehabilitation of the Sava–Litija section is expected to be completed.
  • Between Most na Soči and Jesenice: no alternative service is available due to the impassability of the roads and the geographical specificities. More information on the timing of the opening of this section will be available shortly.
