    Introduction

Madrid has various schemes in place: a low emission zone, an access regulation, an emergency scheme and a weight regulation.


Madrid is one of 4 cities that have stated they wish to remove diesel vehicles from the city. As part of this, the city plans to increase the numbers of access restrictions for private cars. The Grand Via is planned to be car-free by summer 2019.
There is also a plan to have a zero emission zone by 2025. It may be a traffic-free area. More details will be here when they are available.

Madrid has a kind of a low emission zone in place. It is called 'zona de bajas emisiones'(ZBE). The more central you want to park and the more polluting your vehicle is the more you pay for parking.

There is also a plan to have a zero emission zone by 2025. It may be a traffic-free area. More details will be here when they are available.

All

    Costs

The parking costs depend on two variables, the vehicle emissions and where you park. The vehicle emissions are types A to E of the national emissions stickers (see under National Scheme).

Eg Vehicle type A (-20%) in parking area type D (+10%) = pay a 10% reduction (-10%) of the standard fee.

 

There is a base rate, to which reductions and surcharges are applied depending on the technology of the vehicle.

The parking meter will determine the reductions or surcharges that corresponds to apply through its connection to the database of the General Direction of Traffic and to an integral platform of the parking meters.

The base rate will also be paid when the vehicle is not registered in the system of the General Direction of Traffic and it is not possible to determine the reductions or surcharges to be applied by the technology of the vehicle.

You have to type in your number plate information. That means that only registered cars can get reductions or surcharges.

The rest pays the basic price.
