Piran is a coastal town and is well accessible and connected. The town centre is closed for cars, so parking is placed away from it and is accessible by public transport. The municipality has intensive daily migration activity where cars are still the most common means of transportation, but still less common than in average Slovenian municipality.

Pedestrian and cycling infrastructure are partly underdeveloped and not attractive for people to use it more frequently. There is a bike sharing system in the town. Public transport functions well only in the tourist season and as a connection between parking and town centre.
