Žalec is well connected to national motorway network. The municipality is facing issues involving intensive daily migration, heavy traffic and transit traffic.

Cars are still the most common means of transportation. Cycling is not common since the infrastructure is poorly developed and cycling connections are missing between settlements in the municipality. The flat area of the municipality is ideal for walking and cycling, but to make these modes more attractive the network expansion and adaptation of cycling and pedestrian paths is necessary.
