Electric vehicle Kavalir and electric train Urban
For everyone who walks with difficulty, access to all major destinations in the city walking zone is provided by electric vehicles "Kavalirs". A Kavalir can take up to five passengers at the same time. Due to its low speed, you can also stop Kavalir while he is driving. To ride a Kavalir, it costs you nothing. Kavaliers are also present at Žale graveyard area from April till the begining of November in order to be of assistance to elderly people.
Our electric fleet consists of six Kavalir vehicles; three closed are active during the winter, and three open Kavalir vehicles and one closed are on disposal during the summer.
You can reach all Kavalir vehicles on offical telefone numbers: (opened Kavalir vehicles) +386 (0)31 666 331, +386 (0)31 666 332 or (closed Kavalir vehicles) +386 (0)31 666 299.
Schedule: every day / whole year around - from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
We are expecting a new electric train
The old electric train Urban (on the photo seen below) has been composed of a towing vehicle and cars measuring a total of 19m length. The cars were closed and heated in the winter. On the outside, it resembled electric Kavalir vehicles, electric vehicles EURBAN and with their green colour also the city buses. There was an audio / video equipment on the inside of the train, so the tourists could watch the surroundings and follow the descriptions of the important sights. The roof of the vehicle included 12 photovoltaic panels fuelling the train with electricity during the ride along with the battery which has been fueld during each night. The electric motor of the vehicle worked also by two stage recuperation, charging battery cells while braking, particularly when driving downhill. The top speed of the train was 25 km / h. Urban operated according to the schedules published online. Urban has not been running in Ljubljana from february 2017 onwards. A new one has been already ordered.
