Through the municipality runs no federal road, however, national road B 295 ( Stuttgart - Calw ) is three kilometers north of Ostelsheim in Simmozheim. The nearest motorway junction is Böblingen-Hulb on the 81, about twelve kilometers south-east. Ostelsheim is located at the Black Forest Railway (Württemberg) who comes from Stuttgart via Weil der Stadt to town and then continues to Calw. The community, however, was disconnected due to the decommissioning of the section between Weil der Stadt and Calw for freight in 1988. The passenger transport was already shut down in 1983. The nearest railway station is now located about three kilometers in Weil der Stadt. From there are regular buses over Ostelsheim to Calw. The county is planning, the reactivation of the railway line.
