IF YOU GO THROUGH MADRID… TAKE IT INTO ACCOUNT!

If you go through Madrid you should know this: the restrictions on private traffic in the area of the city included in the perimeter named Central Madrid by the City Council, which can only be accessed by car by neighbours, 20 guests maximum per month are already in force, non-polluting vehicles and whoever parks in a parking lot.

The new perimeter, marked by the boulevards and the roundabouts and marked with a double red line, is compact, including the Gran Vía, and eliminates, except for specific exceptions, the streets of free circulation.

The perimeter is formed by Alberto Aguilera, Glorieta de Ruiz Jiménez, Carranza, Glorieta de Bilbao, Sagasta, Plaza de Alonso Martínez, Genoa, Colón, Recoletos and Paseo del Prado, the Plaza del Emperador Carlos V, the Atocha rounds, Valencia, Seville and Toledo, Cuesta de la Vega, Calle Mayor, Plaza de España (lateral continuation of Cuesta de San Vicente), Princesa and Serrano Jover.

It’s an area of the city of low emissions in 472 hectares that restricts traffic, which crosses but has no origin or destination in Central Madrid, estimated at about 58,678 vehicles per day.

The authorities from Madrid want to reduce 40% of the emissions of nitrogen dioxide (NO2).

THE CAR TO THE PARKING WITH ENVIRONMENTAL LABEL

The less polluting cars, the ones labeled Zero Emissions and the Eco, in addition to those of people with reduced mobilitycan can move through Central Madrid without restrictions .

Free collective public transport – taxis, buses and VTC – and clean modes – bicycles, scooters or ‘car sharing’ will circulate freely.

The only way to go in your vehicle to the center of Madrid will be parking in a Central Madrid car park, public or private, but with a municipal badge, without environmental label of the DGT can not circulate, which affects the previous gasoline cars to 2000 and diesel registered before 2006.

You can access those with a garage in the area or go to a hotel with a garage.

Motorcycles of non-residents with a B or C label can be accessed and parked but with a time limit of 7.00 to 22.00, in the case of neighbours they will not have limitations.

With special permits, families with children attending school and night workers, professionals and merchandise with distribution hours, emergencies and pharmacy supply can go to the center. (November 30, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
