The selected data of transport, Slovenia
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).
Port traffic data for the current year are provisional. The final data will be published at the end of July, with an annual release.
