What are we doing for mobility in lockdown exit?
We are adapting public space and mobility to this new scenario in order to bring back daily life to the city.
Measures on citizen mobility to prevent the spread of Covid-19
Stay at home and avoid travelling. Metro and bus services are being adapted according to current passenger demand, and to changes in user patterns. Extra services are also being laid on during rush hours.
A city at 30 km/h
The new municipal decree means 68% of the city’s roads will have 30 km/h speed limits. The measure is already in place along C/ Creu Coberta and C/ Sants and will apply to the whole of the city’s secondary road network. The goal is to cut accident rates and the severity of injuries, as well as to make public space more pleasant.
Where can motorbikes be parked?
The ‘Pedestrian City’ campaign is being stepped up to further promote information on motorbike parking. The goal is to free up space on pavements, increasing safety for pedestrians and accessibility for people with reduced mobility, as well as people with pushchairs.
The Low emissions zone in Barcelona
The Low Emission Zone (LEZ, ZBE in the local languages) comes into force on 1 January 2020 Find out about this atmosphere-protected area which includes all the city between the ring roads and fosters a more sustainable form of mobility for a healthier city.
Over 200 kilometres of cyclable networks
Since the beginning of 2018, 22 new cycle lanes have been opened and 13 more are expected to be open in the next few months. The new lanes are designed to consolidate the use of bikes as a safe, sustainable means of transport.

THE MOBILITY WE WANT
We are working towards a city for people that is friendly and welcoming A city to live in and enjoy a better quality of life.
A friendly, warm, Mediterranean city that you can stroll around and enjoy: Barcelona
A collective commitment to a quality public space with less pollution for everyone. An open, welcoming Barcelona where you can get round on foot, take a stroll, play in the street and talk to and meet people better. A meeting space that makes us feel like we are at home.
For safe, sustainable, efficient journeys. Connecting people, connecting neighbourhoods.
A city of 101.3 km2 where everything is within reach of everyone. Barcelona has a cycling network, a public transport system and a grid of streets which are increasingly prioritising pedestrians, guaranteeing mobility for everyone to enjoy the city to the full.
Getting around SAFELY AND SUSTAINABLY
A dynamic, diverse Barcelona 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. The best options to travel the streets safely and sustainably. Equitable mobility within everyone’s reach. Smart and respectful to the environment and people.
Barcelona is heading towards fume-free sustainable mobility.
The world’s big cities must reduce greenhouse gas emissions as part of the fight against climate change. Because we cannot let the way we get around affect the future of the planet or the generations to come. For the right to get around. For the right to a healthy city.
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.
