Tolmin is facing problems with negative migration growth. This may be related to difficult accessibility of the municipality. Cars are still the most common means of transportation because public transportation is not functioning well enough. Hilly landscape and the dispersed settlement pattern of the municipality are inopportune for development of sustainable modes of transportation.

There is no local bus, so many parts of the municipality are not accessible by public transportation. Busses connecting other towns are not frequent enough to be perceived as an attractive means of transportation. Cycling and walking are not common modes of mobility because of hilly landscape and unsuitable infrastructure that is poorly developed and not connected.
