Novo mesto lies in the south-east part of Slovenia and is an important regional capital. Mobility and spatial planning were very car-oriented in the past, due to a rapid growth in car usage. The motorisation rate in Novo mesto is one of the highest in the country. The municipality also faces a large daily commuter flow. Commuters’ main mode of transportation are cars, partly due to a fact that municipality has, so far, not made any real progress in improving the existing public transportation system.
For short distances, walking is the best alternative (several renovation works are ongoing in the city centre), followed by cycling, which is sometimes not the most comfortable choice due to the topology on a micro level. Nevertheless, a bike sharing system was installed in 2017 for everyday bike usage.
