Ptuj is the oldest city in Slovenia and lies in the north-eastern part of the country. In the past few decades there was a rise in car usage and as a result, valuable public space for pedestrians and cyclists has been taken away from them. Today the city’s key mobility challenge is a lack of safe and well-connected network of paths in the city and their connection to the surrounding area. Some improvements, such as bike sharing system, free local bus line, etc. have already been made.
