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).
4) From September 2021 on, data on passenger-kilometres are partially estimated by the Statistical Office.
Data on road public scheduled transport for the last 12 months are provisional. With each release the data for this period can be corrected and supplemented with new data. They become final 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 December 2021 on, some data on passenger kilometres are estimated by the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia.
