Šoštanj is facing problems with heavy transit traffic on the roads, even in the town centre.
Some parts of the town are well equipped with pedestrian infrastructure but in general there is lack of pedestrian infrastructure on the level of municipality. Cycling infrastructure is unconnected, but there is commonly used bicycle sharing service shared with a neighbouring municipality. Public transportation is hindered by the dispersed settlement pattern of municipality. It is still not commonly used although there are free local buses and the frequency of trains has been increased.
