In the low-emissions zone, less pollution
1 April marks the end of the moratorium for vans (N1). They will not be able to travel through the low-emissions zone without an environmental sticker or authorisation. We remind you that a series of grants and subsidies have been made available during this period for purchasing low-emission vehicles intended for the transport and urban distribution of goods. You don’t see pollution, but you breathe it in.
Initial approval for the 2024 Urban Mobility Plan
The plan specifies a total of 60 lines of action and over 300 measures for more sustainable, safe and healthy mobility. It also sets the goal of 81.52% of travel being undertaken on foot or by public transport or bicycle by 2024.
A city at 30 km/h
Speed limits of 30 km/h are being applied in 112 city streets. The measure is already in place on Carrer de la Creu Coberta - Carrer de Sants and will be applied along the entire network of secondary roads. The goal is to cut accident rates and the severity of injuries, making public space friendlier. The new municipal decree means 68% of the city’s roads will have 30 km/h speed limits.
Where can motorbikes be parked?
Motorbikes and mopeds should preferably park in the specific places marked out for them on roads and in underground car parks. The goal is to free up space on pavements and ensure pedestrian safety and enough room for people with reduced mobility. At the same time, riders are being reminded of the regulations to ensure they park correctly.
Labour mobility pact in Barcelona
A municipal initiative to achieve a sustainable and efficient commuting mobility model for Barcelona and the metropolitan area. An alliance with social and economic organisations and companies in the city, along with all the operators making up the city’s mobility ecosystem.
'Obrim Carrers' (Open Streets) returns on 17th and 18th of October at Gran de Gràcia and Creu Coberta - Sants street.
Walk or go by bike
We are adapting public space and mobility to this new scenario in order to bring back daily life to the city.We’re adapting the city by pushing for pedestrians, bikes and public transport to be at the centre of mobility. Traffic-calmed areas, safe spaces, less pollution, a connected network and, above all, a healthy city for everybody. Find out about everything we're doing
Improvements to the bike lane network
We’ve opened up 20 km of new bike lanes, as well as bike corridors and streets with 30 km/h speed limits and 52 new Bicing stations. We've improved the cycling map by indicating the direction of lanes and created calmed spaces where bicycles get priority over motor vehicles. We're consolidating cycling as a safe and sustainable means of transport.

A CITY FOR WALKING OR CYCLING IN
We’re adapting public space and mobility so that we can get around the city more easily and safely, always using healthy and sustainable means of transport which benefit everybody. We’re working for the city we want.
Pedestrians are at the centre of mobility more than ever now: in Barcelona people get around on foot and enjoy the city.
Walking is the healthiest and most natural way for us to get about. We’re all pedestrians at one moment or another. It’s essential to have traffic-calmed spaces, where we can get around safely with less pollution. Spaces where we can get together, chat, play and stroll. Spaces for enjoying the city.
Getting around SAFELY AND SUSTAINABLY
A dynamic Barcelona, connected and open to the world, where people can get around the whole city easily and efficiently.
Focusing on protecting pedestrians and easing the co-existence of different uses. On foot, by bicycle and on public transport. Barcelona is building a connected mobility network so everyone can find a safe and sustainable way of getting around the city streets. Equitable mobility within everybody’s reach. Smart and respectful towards people and the environment.
Barcelona is adapting to become a leader in sustainable fume-free mobility.
Fighting climate change and reducing greenhouse-gas emissions is more necessary than ever. Barcelona is making the most of the opportunity to work towards a healthy city, where the right to mobility and the right to a future with clean air coexist.
Bike lanes, cycling corridors and streets with 30 km/h speed limits offer spaces where bikes get priority over motor vehicles.
We’re opening up spaces for the bicycle to become the priority means of transport. We're extending the network of bike lanes and guaranteeing journeys around the city by linking street-calmed areas with public transport options so that you can always take your bike with you.
The electric mobility strategy aims to increase the number of electric vehicles used by municipal services and public transport, as well as incentivising their private use.
Climate change is a reality and it is caused by humans. There is already proof of its impact and we have to take steps to counter it. What can you do to help?
Barcelona has a regulation for personal mobility vehicles (PMV) and cycles with more than two wheels, in order to solve the problems of coexistence in the public space.
An area of more than 95 km2 has been established (Barcelona and the municipalities surrounding the ring roads or ‘rondas’) where it is planned to progressively restrict the circulation of pollutant vehicles.
