The main bus station in Ljubljana is adjacent to the train station. The street address is Trg Osvobodilne front 4 and the telephone number is +386 (0)1 234 46 00. The bus station has its own website with pages in English (see below).

The site also gives both city and local bus route maps.

Those wishing to travel on Ljubljana city buses, operated by the Ljubljanski potniški prompt (LPP) public utility company, should purchase the Urbana public transport card. The Urbana card is available from LPP ticket offices, tourist information centers and most of the city’s newspaper kiosks, news-stands and post offices.
The card is priced at €2.00 and can store up to €50.00 of credit to be spent on city bus fares.
The Urbana card can be topped up with cash at all the above-mentioned sales outlets and the green Urbanomat ticket machines located across the city, mostly next to bus stops. The ticket machines accept both cash and credit and debit cards.
Visitors to Ljubljana who purchase their Urbana card from a Tourist Information Centre and keep the receipt can return the card to the place of purchase when they no longer need it and claim a €2.00 refund.
The city bus stops display maps of the route and many of the buses use a recorded message system to announce upcoming stops. It is worth noting that smoking, eating or drinking and the use of mobile phones are not allowed on the bus. You will need the exact fare for your destination as no change is given for overpayment.
