Permanent low emissions zone to be regulated

In an effort to improve environmental health and cut pollutant emissions from motor vehicles by 30%, the permanent low emissions area is set to come into force on 1 January 2020 and will be in place on working days, from 7 am to 8 pm.

Watch where you go on your electric scooter

An electric scooter is not a toy. You need to abide by the rules for these types of vehicle, as well as the city's general traffic regulations. Remember that scooters, electric unicycles, electric hoverboards and the like are not allowed to ride along pavements.

Get about safely on your motorbike wherever you go

Motorbikes account for 25% of journeys made by private vehicles in Barcelona and 7% of overall mobility in the city. They make up a particularly vulnerable group, alongside pedestrians, given their high accident rates. We are working to improve their safety through a variety of initiatives.

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.

Getting there Find out the best options for getting round on public transport


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.

Priority: Pedestrians

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.


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.
