Let’s respect each other when moving around the city
When travelling around the city, it’s important to reduce stress, bad moods and haste to a minimum. And follow regulations! That way, we’ll all be safer and live together in harmony.
Barcelona Superblock Plan
Barcelona has embarked on a large transformation of public space to take on the big challenges of the future and put residents’ lives at the centre.
A city at 30 km/h
Speed limits of 30 km/h are applied in the entire network of secondary roads and in streets with a single lane of traffic in each direction. The measure is already in place on carrer Creu Coberta - Sants.
Initial approval for the 2024 Urban Mobility Plan
The plan specifies 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.
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.
Labour mobility pact for Barcelona
The municipal initiative to achieve the sustainable and efficient mobility model required for Barcelona and the metropolitan area. The initiative aims to form a major public-private alliance.
Walk or go by bike

Mobility and transport. Improvements will also be made to make it easier, safer and more sustainable to get around by bike, such as shifting existing lanes onto road surfaces or widening them.
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.
You can check the 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 restricted the circulation of pollutant vehicles.
You can see the map of the bicycle lane network, both implemented and in progress, as well as the cycle routes in Barcelona (last updated: September 2018)
