Slovenia in place 16 on EU's 2018 Transport Scoreboard


Consumers in Slovenia were very satisfied with transport in 2017, rating it clearly above EU average for all modes of transport and better than in the previous reference period, according to the scoreboard report on Slovenia.

The country's road safety "performance has been worse than EU average as in 2016 63 fatalities per million inhabitants were recorded."

In terms of the internal market in transport, the indexes show Slovenia faced seven infringement proceedings last year for failing to transpose EU's road transport rules and two proceedings in aviation, but no infringement proceedings in rail and maritime policies.

The indexes also show that 87% of cargo transport is performed by Slovenske ┼Żeleznice and that the national rail operator conducted 100% rail passenger transport in the country; data for both indexes was sourced in 2016.

Slovenia ranked below average in most indexes relevant to investments and infrastructure, including efficiency of rail, seaport and air transport services, quality of roads and timeliness of shipments.

Meanwhile, innovation indexes show that Slovenia had more electric vehicle charging points and its residents spent less hours in road congestion in 2017 than other EU residents on average.

The country, however, ranked below average in terms of market share of electric passenger cars and was one before last among EU member stater in terms of share of renewable energy in transport fuel consumption.
