1) Urban scheduled public transport is not included.
2) Data are provisional.
3) The data on passengers and passenger-km in public scheduled transport and data on passengers in urban scheduled transport from September 2016 on have been partly estimated due to the introduction of a new integrated public transport system (IJPP) and the new system of subsidised tickets for public transport (the estimates were prepared by the Ministry of Infrastructure).

METHODOLOGICAL NOTE
Data on road public scheduled transport for the last 12 months are provisional. With each release the data for the last 12 months can be corrected and supplemented with new data. With the release on 15 June 2022, the data on passenger kilometres from September 2021 to March 2022 were revised. They become final with an annual release.

Port traffic data for the current year are provisional. The final data will be published at the end of July 2022 with an annual release.

Data on port traffic published by SURS may differ from the data published by ports in their reports. The differences are due to the use of different methodologies (different data sources, tare consideration, etc.).

From September 2021 on, some data on passenger kilometres are estimated by the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia.
