The P+R system (P+R stands for park and ride) is a combination of private and public transportation, which allows users to reach the main points on the city outskirts or the radial roads with their cars and continue their journey to the city by bus or a bicycle from the BicikeLJ bike-sharing system. By paying a parking fee of 1.20 euros, the P+R system users are
entitled to two bus rides until 11:59 pm of the same day. This way, the number of cars in the city centre is reduced.
In Ljubljana, there are five P+R facilities that operate within the P+R system:
- P+R Dolgi most
- P+R Barje
- P+R ŠRC Stožice
- P+R Studenec
- P+R Ježica
In cooperation with the neighbouring municipalities, Urbana payments are also possible at three other P+R facilities.
Public company Ljubljanska parkirišča in tržnice manages public parking at 22 car parks (including the P+R facilities), parking garages (Kongresni trg, Kozolec II), and truck parking areas.
Already in 2007, the public company Ljubljanska parkirišča in tržnice website launched an app which provides users of parking spaces managed by the company with the information about their occupancy. In 2015, the app was upgraded with the option of renting parking spaces and with the information on any waiting times.

Parking for Private Vehicles, Buses and Caravans
Our parking policy gives priority to parking in the vicinity of healthcare, supply, educational and other public services while limiting parking in the city centre. The practice to date shows that certain order in stationary traffic can be established with the introduction of traffic payments which are harmonised with the responsible District Community and numerous other stakeholders. Parking in Ljubljana in managed in zones. Above all the use of the P+R system is promoted. Payment of the parking fee can be made with the smart city card Urbana, Urbana SMS-Parking service or the Urbana mobile application.
