URBANA

Card for urban residents.

CONTACTLESS SMART CARD

Enables quick and convenient cash-free travel on LPP city buses. You can also use it to ride the funicular up to Ljubljana Castle, pay to park in white zones and car parks operated by Ljubljana Parking and Markets public company, pay to borrow Bicike(LJ) bikes and for Ljubljana City Library services. 

EVER MORE USERS

The uniform payment system of the Urbana single city card, which was introduced on Ljubljana buses in 2009, has allowed in the last three years the integration between regional and school bus routes for the needs of neighbouring local authorities in Ljubljana Urban Region. This integration has given passengers fares cut in half on integrated lines, greater accessibility, consistent timetables, links to the comprehensive route network and as a result an 18.5% rise in usership on city routes and a 34% rise in travel on interregional routes.

CONSTANTLY UPGRADING

As part of the 'Optimum' project, we will ensure the optimisation of transfer of travel data in an open database for all companies that handle data. In the future, as part of this project we plan to upgrade the online checking of the card balance, 'Urbana Online' and upgrade the system for the online purchase of Urbana cards.

BUYING AND REFILLING URBANA

You can buy an Urbana at 347 sales outlets in and around Ljubljana. The most practical way is to buy and refill the yellow Vrednostna ('Value') Urbana at Urbanomats, which are mainly found at bus stops; this can be done 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
