If you live in Velenje or in its suburbs you can go to any place in the city by bus and for free. The municipality of Velenje provides 380.000 EUR per year to provide free city transportation for more than 35.000 passengers per month. We decided to offer free transport because of the following reasons:- Many older people don’t drive. – Their relatives aren’t at home all the time or are too busy to drive them around. – Some people find taxis too expensive.Free bus rides benefit all people, not just seniors. Two buses have wheelchair ramps to be accessible. Our goal is to bring people out of their houses, so they can participate in our local community. We are happy to see all generations of people at our events. Grandparents drive with their grandchildren to the shopping centre, school, football practice, to the lake, ice rink, music school – anywhere in the city …A bus is stopping at a bus stops every 15 minutes (Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays every hour). City buses operate from 6 am to 10 pm.
