Parking meters are used in most towns to limit parking time. In Ljubljana’s city centre there are over 2,000 parking spaces and they operate a park and ride system from the outskirts.
There are different parking zones when parking in the city centres;
- White zones: Parking is permitted at places marked with white lines for a maximum of 2 hours, between the hours of 0700 - 1900. Parking tickets are purchased at parking machines.
- Blue zones: Parking is also allowed at places marked with blue lines, parking is free but only allowed for a maximum of 30 minutes.
Motorists wishing to park for longer must do so at public parking areas and garages.
In case of illegal parking, the authorities will tow vehicles away or wheel clamp them.
There are reserved parking spaces for the disabled which are marked with a wheelchair symbol. These may also be used by foreign disabled motorists provided they are in possession of the blue badge.
