Kočevje and surrounding settlements of the municipality lie on the flat terrain and quite close together. That makes good conditions for walking and cycling in the municipality.

Cycling infrastructure is partly built but is poorly equipped and not connected. Heavy traffic prevents the old town centre to become the main social and cultural open space. Public transportation is not functioning well, there is no train connection and no local bus. Bus lines to other towns are less and less frequent, which is problematic because the population is getting older and will increasingly depend on public transport.
